Heart to heart...

To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul; in you I trust, O my God. ...
No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame.
Psalm 25: 1,2a,3a

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton received great solace
by bringing her sorrows to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament
and speaking heart to heart with Him there:

"And in every disappointment, great or small, 
let your heart fly directly to your dear Savior, 
throwing yourself in those arms for refuge 
against every pain and sorrow.
Jesus will never leave you or forsake you."

"The accidents of life separate us from our dearest friends,
but let us not despair.  God is like a looking glass in which 
souls see each other.  The more we are united to Him by love, the nearer 
we are to those  who belong to Him." - St Elizabeth Ann Seton
