Life which comes as a virgin to us all, most safely came to her. Time, when she passed, remained inviolate.
Grant us grace to climb Mount Carmel and to learn that love is loss. Guide us still our ways outdistance all earth’s treasures save the cross.
The Virgin Mary cannot enter into my soul for an indwelling. God alone has sealed this land as secretly His own
She was a maiden promised to one lover whom she was always seeking
Magdalen, first to drink the fountained Christ
All true ascesis as a desert lies
Prayer is the trap-door out of sin.
