Life[ edit ] Early life and education[ edit ] While his exact birthdate is unknown, it is believed that Silesius was born in December in Breslau , the capital of Silesia. The earliest mention of him is the registration of his baptism on Christmas Day, 25 December At the time, Silesia was a German-speaking province of the Habsburg Empire. Today, it is the southwestern region of Poland.

Baptized Johann Scheffler, he was the first of three children. His parents, who married in February , were Lutheran Protestants. In , he was His earliest poems were written and published during these formative years. From to , he attended Leiden University. The Dutch Republic provided refuge to many religious sects, mystics, and scholars who were persecuted elsewhere in Europe.

A year later, he received a doctoral degree in philosophy and medicine and returned to his homeland. Franckenberg was the son of a minor noble from the village of Ludwigsdorf near Oels within the duchy. The Duke was characterized in history as being "a zealous Lutheran and very bigoted.

At this time, the Habsburg rulers who were Catholic were pushing for a Counter Reformation and advocated a re-Catholicisation of Europe.

However, this was probably an honorary position to offer some official protection against Lutheran attackers, as Silesius never went to Vienna to serve the Imperial Court. It is very likely that he never practiced medicine after his conversion to Catholicism.

On 27 February , Silesius took holy orders as a Franciscan. Three months later, he was ordained a priest in the Silesian Duchy of Neisse —an area of successful re-Catholicisation and one of two ecclesiastical states within the region that is, ruled by a Prince-Bishop. Thirty-nine of these essays he later compiled into a two-volume folio collection entitled Ecclesiologia Some sources claim he died from tuberculosis "consumption" , others describe his illness as a "wasting sickness.

Silesius delighted specially in the subtle paradoxes of mysticism. The essence of God, for instance, he held to be love; God, he said, can love nothing inferior to himself; but he cannot be an object of love to himself without going out, so to speak, of himself, without manifesting his infinity in a finite form; in other words, by becoming man.

God and man are therefore essentially one. It requires an understanding of God that is informed by the ideas of apophatic theology and of antithesis and paradox.

However, in the introduction to Cherubinischer Wandersmann, he explained his poetry especially its paradoxes within the framework of Catholic orthodoxy and denied pantheism which would have run afoul of Catholic doctrine.

In many early Lutheran and Protestant hymnals , these lyrics were attributed to "anonymous", rather than admit they were penned by the Catholic Silesius, known for his criticism and advocacy against Protestantism. Likewise, several truly anonymous works were later misattributed to Silesius, thanks to the same ambiguous initials. During the 18th Century, they were frequently in use in the Lutheran, Catholic, and Moravian Churches.

In a series of lectures entitled Siete Noches "Seven Nights" , Argentine writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges — remarks that the essence of poetry can be encapsulated in a single line from Silesius. Borges wrote: I will end with a great line by the poet who, in the seventeenth century, took the strangely real and poetic name of Angelus Silesius. It is the summary of all I have said tonight — except that I have said it by means of reasoning and simulated reasoning.

Ich bin wie Gott, und Gott wie ich. I am as Large as God, He is as small as I. He cannot above me, nor I beneath him be. The character of Cady uses it to emphasize dramatically to his intended victims the power of his individual will and his god-like ability to exact a violent vengeance.

HEARING FROM GOD EACH MORNING BY JOYCE MEYER PDF

Angelus Silesius

Dass Gott so selig ist und lebet ohn Verlangen, hat er sowohl von mir, als ich von ihm empfangen. Gott ist das, was er ist, ich bin das, was ich bin. Doch kennst du einen wohl, so kennst du mich und ihn. Kalt lassen werden diese provokanten Zeilen des streitbaren Mystikers nur wenige. Suchst du Gott anderswo.
