Word Wednesday: lesser know words, pointing to familiar themes, relevant to spiritual practice. Resipiscence is a corker!
Noun: recognition of past mistakes and desire to do better in future.
The word is derived from Latin resipiscere which means ‘to recover one’s senses’.
From Foyle’s Philavery, A treasury of unusual words.
This looks like a fine sentiment, or ‘movement of the heart’, for those following a spiritual path.
