Included information card reads:
Front — Leaf Necklace inspired by St. Hildegard of Bingen — Among Hildegard’s contributions to the world was her idea of “viriditas” or greening power. Hildegard strongly encouraged others to tend their souls so as to always be filled with life and vitality — greenness through and with the Spirit. Hildegard was moved by the vibrant greening of the earth in the Rhine valley of Germany where she lived. Let this dish remind you always to cultivate the garden within.
Back — When a forest does not green vigorously, then it is no longer a forest. When a tree does not blossom it cannot bear fruit. Likewise, a person cannot be fruitful without the viriditas (greening power) of faith. The soul that is full of wisdom is saturated with the spray of a bubbling fountain, God himself. — St. Hildegard of Bingen
