|Painting by Petrus Van Schendel|
"Prayer is nothing other than a union with God.
When your heart is pure and united with God,
you feel within yourself a balm,
a sweetness that is inebriating,
a light that is dazzling.
In this intimate union,
God and the soul
are like two pieces of wax
that have melted together;
you can no longer separate them."Saint John Vianney
