And at my departing.

We do not walk to God with the feet of our body, nor would wings, if we had them, carry us to Him, but we go to Him, by the affections of our Soul.
St. Augustine

 

Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance. Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor vexation...Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety nor doubt.
St. Francis of Assisi

 

Lord, lock me up in the deepest depths of your heart; and then holding me there, burn me, purify me, set me on fire, sublimate me, till I become utterly what you would have me be...

St. Teresa of Avila
