" "What a tremendous delight, my God! To spend over fifteen hours without anything else to do but but look at you and tell you, 'Lord I Love You'." - Blessed Charles de Foucauld

Monday Musings - Praying Before the Tabernacle



(Image source: Wikimedia Commons)

"I think there was a certain Bishop Curtis who said that when he prayed before the tabernacle he liked to picture himself as a faithful and devoted dog lying at his master’s feet. Both are glad to have each other; both are silent. It is a rather unusual way of looking at the matter but it strikes home. Prayer is not in words only. It is also in tears and sighs and heartaches."


(From The Way to God by Father Winfrid  Herbst, S.D.S.)
