His Light...

Painting by J. Kirk Richards
"May I ever see
 You only,
 look on You,
 long for You;
 may I gaze
 with love on
 You alone,
 and have my lantern
 shining and burning
 in Your presence.
St. Columban, Abbot

 and nothing
can take that
away from me."

Painting by Winslow Homer
"God would never 
inspire me 
with desires
 which cannot
 be realized; 
so in spite
 of my 
 I can hope
 to be a saint."

All In The April Evening...

Painting by William Kay Blalock
All in the April evening,
April airs were abroad;
The sheep with their little lambs
Pass'd me by on the road.

The sheep with their little lambs
Pass'd me by on the road;
All in the April evening
I thought of the Lamb of God.

The lambs were weary, and crying
With a weak human cry;
I thought of the Lamb of God
Going meekly to die.

Up in the blue, blue mountains
Dewy pastures are sweet
Rest for the little bodies,
Rest for the little feet.

But, for the Lamb, the Lamb of God
Up on the hill-top green
Only a cross, a cross of shame
Two stark crosses between.

All in the April evening,
April airs were abroad,
I saw the sheep with their lambs,
And thought of the Lamb of God.
Katherine Tynan, 1891

Faith and Love...

She waits...

Painting by John George Brown

 It is indeed a great love,
 to love You
 without feeling
 the sweetness
 of Your love."
St. Therese of Lisieux, Divine Intimacy

Stay with me...

Painting by William Holman Hunt
"Hidden in the obscurity of faith,
 God draws near our soul,
 makes Himself our traveling companion,
 and still more,
 lives in us by grace.

...The soul who
 has found the Lord, 
even but once in this manner,
 not outside itself,
 but within itself,
 living and acting in its heart, 
cannot fail to direct to Him the cry: 
"Stay with me!"

…God remains with us; it is for us to remain with Him."

(Taken in part from 'Divine Intimacy' by Father Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D.)
