The overflowing soul...

 As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him,
rooted and built up in him and established in the faith,
just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. - Col 2:6,7

"Prayer, united to this Divine Sacrifice, has unutterable power, so that in it the soul overflows with celestial grace, as leaning upon her words of Solomon, she is “like a pillar of smoke of aromatical spices, of myrrh and frankincense, and of all powders of the perfumer. “ (Cant. 3:6).

Endeavor, if possible, to be present daily at the Holy Mass, that, together with the priest, you may offer the Sacrifice of your Redeemer to God His Father on your own behalf and that of the whole Church."
St Francis de Sales
Introduction to the Devout Life  (pg 92)
