Quote of the day, 8 January: St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

You are going to find this strange—I’m telling you this in confidence—I am already beginning my Heaven on earth, but sometimes I would like to see the other side so as to see Him, Him… to love Him and lose myself in His Infinity. Oh, my Françoise, you have such an ardent heart; don’t you understand what love is when it concerns Him who has so loved us? If only you knew how He loves you, and how I love you too!…
