Hidden sweetness

Stained glass:  Church of the Blessed Sacrament - Albany, NY
"Place your mind before the mirror of eternity! 
Place your soul in the brilliance of glory! 
Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance! 
And transform your entire being into the image of the Godhead
Itself through contemplation.  So that you too may feel what His
friends feel as they taste the hidden sweetness that God Himself
has reserved from the beginning for those who love Him."

St Clare of Assisi
Italy ~ 1194-1253
Foundress of Poor Clare Sisters
FEAST DAY – August 11

"They say that we are too poor, but can a heart which
possesses the infinite God be truly called poor?" ~ St Clare

St Clare, ora pro nobis!
