Withdraw... to find a life...

"Some of us would be surprised if they knew what God
could make of them if, in the decisive moments of their lives,
they gave ear to the voice of grace!" St Ignatius of Loyola


"To withdraw from creatures
and repose with Jesus in the Tabernacle 
is my delight; 
there I can hide myself and seek rest. 

There I ...
 find a life which I cannot describe,
a joy which I cannot make others comprehend,
a peace such as is found only
under the hospitable roof of our best Friend."

St. Ignatius of Loyola
