...that our JOY may be full...

  "No one will have any other desire in heaven than what God wills;
and the desire of one will be the desire of all;
and the desire of all and of each one
will also be the desire of God." - St. Anselm, Letter 112

"I adore and venerate You 
as much as ever I can,
though my love is so cold, my devotion so poor.

Thank You for the good gift of this
Your holy Body and Blood, which I desire to receive...
that which You promised through Your truth,
that my joy may be full

St. Anselm

"O God our God, grant us grace to desire you with a whole heart,
so that desiring you we may seek and find you;
and so finding you, may love you;
and loving you may hate those sins which separate us from you,
for the sake of Jesus Christ." St Anselm

Mary began to carry all of us in her womb." St Anselm
