The AO3 Tag of the Day is: This is a callout post for every single medieval mystic, but especially for Catherine of Siena, who had a vision of Jesus giving her his foreskin as a wedding ring
[Image Description: Ask reading “Jesus’ WHAT now as WHAT”]Here, my friend, is an excerpt from a letter written by Catherine of Siena, a real, actual saint whose visions are considered by the real, actual Catholic Church to be really, actually divinely inspired:You see very well that you are a bride and that [Jesus] has espoused you … and not with a ring of silver but with a ring of his own flesh. Look at the tender little child who on the eighth day, when he was circumcised, gave up just so much flesh as to make a tiny circlet of a ring!For the record, this woman contributed to the development of a major schism in the 14th century, one which radically changed the geopolitics of Europe and created the conditions that led to the Reformation. Never doubt your ability to change the world, friends. Literally anyone can.
