To know, to love...

"You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying,
to run by running, to work by working; in just
the same way you learn to love by loving."
St Francis de Sales


"Communion and contemplation belong together:
a person cannot communicate with another person
without knowing him. Love or friendship always carries
within it an impulse of reverence, of adoration.
Communicating with Christ therefore demands
that we gaze on Him, allow Him to gaze on us,
listen to Him, get to know Him. Adoration is
simply the personal aspect of Communion."
Pope Benedict XVI

Consider more frequent or even daily Adoration 
or holy Mass attendance during Lent. 
You will grow to know and to love Jesus
more and more!
