Quote of the day, 14 June: Blessed Maria Candida

What mystery of love is this intimacy with our Beloved! I reflect on this, sometimes with emotion, and give praise to Him Who is Love! And with tears, I contemplate this intimacy.

Everything here on this earth is nothing for us, withdrawn as we are, far from Him Who loved us so much; our eyes no longer see anything: and even though we close them again to lose ourselves from the same sacred environment, we close them anxious to find Him again, to see Jesus!

The most delightful Mystery of Love! He allows Himself to be found by the heart that searches for Him, by the soul that knows how to do without many things for love of Him.

Blessed Maria Candida of the Eucharist

  1. I missed this email somehow. This is another gem!!! “Prefer nothing whatever to Christ”, to quote a non OCD, as in yesterday’s Office of Readings I believe.
