We discover the Holy Spirit speaking to us in the words of Scripture, and it is the Spirit within us who enables us to listen to him. It’s a rather interesting concept but quite true. The Spirit is present in the Word; the Spirit is present in us.

-from The Gospels According to Saint Francis


“He does not come down from Heaven each day to stay in the gold ciborium. He comes down to find another Heaven He cherishes infinitely more than the first, the Heaven of our souls, made in His image, living temples of the Most Blessed Trinity!”

— St. Therese of Lisieux
