O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you
in a dry and weary land where there is no water. - Psalm 63:1
"Beg Him, supplicate Him, that He will permit you
to receive with true faith. O Heavenly bliss!
Delight past all expression! How consoling, how sweet,
the presence of Jesus to the longing, harassed soul!
It is instant peace and balm to every wound."
St Elizabeth Ann Seton (+1821)
