Kindle the flame...
|(Lady by the Fireplace by Gustav Klimt)|
'The interior life is a secret hearth where a soul in contact wiht God is inflamed with His love, and precisely because it is inflamed and forged by love, it becomes a docile instrument which God can use to diffuse love into the hearts of others. Therefore, it is very important to recall frequently this great principle: the interior life is the the soul of the apostolate. A deep interior life will generate intense love and intimate union with God, and therefore, from it will spring a fruitful apostolate, a true sharing in Christ's work of saving souls..."

Father, grant that Your flame of love consume my own heart, that others will see that You are loving them through me!
