Prayer of heart...

 "Don't drag yourself any longer to His feet.  
Follow that first impulse that draws you into His arms.  
That is where your place is." - St Thérèse of Lisieux

"Frequently, only silence can express my prayer. 
However, this Divine Guest of the tabernacle understands all,
even the silence of a child's soul filled with gratitude. 

When I am before the tabernacle,
I can say only one thing to Our Lord:
'My God, you know that I love you'
and I feel my prayer does not tire Jesus."
