His response: “Build an oratory within yourself, and there have Jesus on the altar of your heart. Speak to him often while you are doing your work. Speak to him of his holy love, of his holy sufferings, and of the sorrows of the most holy Mary.”
Thank you, St. Paul, for words of wisdom from the 1700s that still apply today.
I love the idea that, in the midst of our busy search for God, there’s a simple solution that lies inside of us. It’s so easy to look outside ourselves and try to arrange everything differently in hopes of magically finding a couple more hours in the day. But we already have the real answer in our hearts. The hours we do have can become more meaningful to the degree that we connect with God’s presence from within.
Let’s do it, ladies! Let’s show the Lord how many hearts are waiting to welcome him into our daily lives.
