My God will be my Great Reward. I don’t desire to possess other goods.
I want to be set on fire with his Love.
I want to see him, to unite myself to him forever.
That is my Heaven…
that is my destiny:
Living on Love!!
St. Thérèse of Lisieux
Quoted in the book Saint Thérèse of Lisieux: Living on Love
(an odd juxtaposition of images on the off beaten path / Julie Cook / 2021)
A flag, a dumpster and a ‘dead end’ sign.
What a telling mix of imagery.
Is it a sign of what might be?
A sign of what currently is…?
Or simply a bad mix of imagery?
I think we will be the determining factor of what will or will not be.
“We have to accustom ourselves to pray in all places and at all times.
The real place to pray in is the soul, for God dwells there.
If we wish to obey our Lord’s counsel,
when we pray we should enter the chamber of our soul,
close the door, and speak to the Father, whose loving eyes seek ever our own.
This inner chamber of our soul is the true temple,
the sacred sanctuary, and we carry it with us and can at any time
either remain there or quickly return to it,
should we have been obliged to leave it.”
Dom Augustin Guillerand, p. 111
