On all sides, His presence...

"I pray because the need flows out of me
all the time, waking and sleeping. 
It doesn't change God, it changes me." - CS Lewis

"For my part, I know that all the great moments of my day
are found in the incomparable hours that I spend on my knees
in darkness before the Most Blessed Sacrament
of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I am, so to speak, swallowed up in God
and surrounded on all sides by His presence.
I would like to belong now to God alone
and to plunge into the purity of His love.
And yet, I can tell how poor I am,
how far from loving the Lord as He loved me
to the point of giving Himself up for me."
