"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."
