"How sweet, the presence of Jesus
to the longing and harassed soul!
He is instant peace and balm to every wound."

"The accidents of life separate us from our dearest friends, but let us not despair. 
God is like a looking glass in which souls see each other. 
The more we are united to Him by love, the nearer we are 
to those who belong to Him. - St Elizabeth Ann Seton

St Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us!
