Selected Quote

I am convinced that one should tell one's spiritual director if one has a great desire for Communion, for Our Lord does not come from Heaven every day to stay in a golden ciborium; He comes to find another heaven, the heaven of our soul in which He loves to dwell.
- St. Thérèse de Lisieux, The Story Of A Soul: The Autobiography Of St. Therese Of Lisieux
