St. John of the Cross' exquisite Poem 7 about the "lone young shepherd" with the pierced heart, is our canticle for the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus: "his heart an open wound with love".
During her most active apostolic years with Catholic Action, Blessed Chiquitunga wrote, "I want everything to be saturated with Christ, and, wherever I am, I can leave a little ray of His light"...
During this Lent, so divine in Carmel, my soul will be especially united to yours. I am asking God to show you the sweetness of His presence...
Oh, how sweet your presence will be to me, you who are the supreme good!... I will not rest until I rejoice in your arms.
God seemed so present to me that I thought of St. Peter's words: You are Christ, Son of the living God
Who would not cry in your arms without instantly receiving your immaculate kiss of love and comfort?
I do not fear my weakness; that's what gives me confidence
I do not know what is happening. My Master caught hold of me
I feel him around me, looking at me and protecting me
Social media isn’t an isolated world: there are also people there
You, nearer to me than I to myself
