Alive... for you, for me

Today is Sunday and as a 4c homily reminds,
"The Lord's Day is the lord of days." ...
Today may we also remember ... Bl Elizabeth of the Trinity...

“When Our Lord was on earth, the Gospel says
‘a secret power went out from Him,’
at His touch the sick recovered their health,
the dead were restored to life.

Well, He is still living!
living … in His adorable Sacrament.”

"Let us live with God as with a Friend. Let us make our faith a living thing, so as to remain in communion with Him through everything. That is how saints are made. We carry our heaven within us, since He who completely satisfies every longing of the glorified souls in the light of the Beatific Vision, is giving Himself to us in faith and mystery. 
It is the same thing. It seems to me I have found my heaven on earth, since heaven is God and God is in my soul. The day I understood that, everything became clear to me, and I wish I could whisper this secret to those I love in order that they also might cling closely to God through everything."  ~ Bl Elizabeth of the Trinity

"I think my mission in heaven will be to draw souls, helping them to go out of themselves to cling to God, with a spontaneous, love-filled action, and to keep them in that great interior silence which enables God to make His mark on them, to transform them into Himself..... This intimacy with the One who dwells within me has been the beautiful sunshine that has irradiated my life... Give peace to my soul.  Make it your heaven, Your beloved dwelling and Your resting place!"~ Bl Elizabeth of the Trinity

Bl Elizabeth of the Trinity, pray for us!
