Close and closer still...

"Totally love Him, Who gave Himself, 
totally for your love.” - St Clare

“I come, O Lord, unto Thy sanctuary 
to see the life and food of my soul.  
As I hope in Thee, O Lord, inspire me with that 
confidence which brings me to Thy holy mountain. 

Permit me, Divine Jesus, 
to come closer to Thee, 
that my whole soul may do homage 
to the greatness of Thy majesty; 
thamy heart, with its tenderest affections, 
may acknowledge Thine infinite love; 
that my memory may dwell on the admirable mysteries 
here renewed every day, and 
that the sacrifice of my whole being 
may accompany Thine.”

"They say that we are too poor, but can a heart which
possesses the infinite God be truly called poor?" St Clare
