Today's Reflection

We may make an oratory of our heart wherein to retire from time to time to converse with God in meekness, humility, and love. Every one is capable of such familiar conversation with God, some more, some less. He knows what we can do. Let us begin, then . . . Le us live and die with God. Sufferings will be sweet and pleasant to us while we are with him; and the greatest pleasures will be, without him, a cruel punishment to us. May he be blessed forever. Amen

– Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection
