Quote of the day, 22 November, St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

[Saint Paul] wants me “to grow in Jesus Christ through thanksgiving” [cf. Col 2:6-7]: for everything should end in this! “Father, I thank You!” [Jn 11:41] My Master sang this in His soul and He wants to hear the echo of it in mine! But I think that the “new song” [Rev 14:3] which will most charm and captivate my God is that of a soul stripped and freed from self, one in whom He can reflect all that He is, and do all that He wills. This soul remains under His touch like a lyre, and all His gifts to it are like so many strings which vibrate to sing, day and night, the praise of His glory!
