Seek, find, love...

"Sanctity is not rigid like cardboard: it knows how to smile,
to give way to others and to hope.
It is life - a supernatural life." - St Josemaría Escrivá

" ... Jesus hides in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar 
because He wants us to dare to approach Him. 
He wants to nourish us 
so we become one single thing with Him.

When He said, Apart from Me you can do nothing, 
He was not condemning Christians to ineffectiveness 
or obliging them to seek Him by a difficult and arduous route. 
On the contrary ... He has stayed with us, 
He is totally available to us."

St Josemaría Escrivá
Spain ~ 1902-1975
Priest, Founder of Opus Dei

St Josemaria Escriva describes this experience
about himself as a young seminarian...
"Why am I becoming a priest? Our Lord wants something: what is it?  And in Latin — not very elegant Latin — … I kept repeating Domine, ut videam! Ut sit! Ut sit!  - The thing that you want, and that I don’t know — make it happen!”
