Grace is dropping down...

"To receive the grace of God into our own hearts,
they must be void of our own glory." - Fr William Doyle

"As regards prayer, you should try to follow the attraction
of the Holy Spirit, for all souls are not led by the same path.
It would not be well to spend all the time in vocal prayer,
there should be some meditation, thought or contemplation.

Try 'basking in the sun of God’s love,' that is, quietly kneeling 
before the Tabernacle, as you would sit enjoying the warm sunshine,
not trying to do anything, except love Him;
but realizing that, during all the time you are at His feet,
more especially when dry and cold, grace is dropping down
upon your soul and you are growing fast in holiness."

Fr William Doyle (+1917)
