His Heart, hidden

All the believers were one in heart... - Acts 4:32a
"In the heart of Jesus, which was pierced, the kingdom
of heaven and the land of earth are bound together.
Here is for us the source of life.
This heart is the heart of the Triune Divinity,
and the center of all human hearts...
It draws us to Itself with secret power, it conceals us in Itself
in the Father's bosom and floods us with the Holy Spirit.
This heart, it beats for us in a small tabernacle where it remains mysteriously hidden in that still, white host."
St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
(Edith Stein)
Germany ~ 1891-1942
Convert from Judaism - Carmelite nun
Martyr at Auschwitz
"Learn from St. Therese to depend on God alone and serve Him with a wholly pure and detached heart. Then, like her you will be able to say ‘I do not regret that I have given myself up to Love’.’’ - St Teresa Benedicta
St Teresa Benedicta, pray for us!
