Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls ... - Psalm 42:7
“Only by the power of grace can nature be purged from the dross and made ready to receive the divine life. And this life itself is the fountain from which springs the works of love. A woman's life for which divine love is to be the driving force will have to be a Eucharistic life. To forget self, to open one's heart to the various needs of others - this becomes possible only through daily intimacy with our Lord in the tabernacle.
If we visit the Eucharistic God and seek His counsel in all our problems, if we let ourselves be purified by the sanctifying power that flows from the altar, if we offer ourselves to the Lord in this sacrifice and receive Him into our souls in Holy Communion, then we cannot but be drawn ever more deeply into the current of the divine life. We shall grow into the mystical body of Christ and our heart will be fashioned in the likeness of the Sacred Heart."
St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)*

*Born into a German Jewish family, Edith Stein had a conversion experience one night after reading St Teresa of
’s autobiography. She exclaimed, “That is the truth!” Shortly after, she was baptized a Catholic and received her First Communion. She later became a Carmelite. Avila
