Honey in our souls...

Painting by Olga Boznanska

"My little children, 
your hearts are small, 
but, prayer stretches them, 
and makes them capable of loving God.  
Through prayer we receive 
a foretaste of Heaven
 and something of paradise comes 
down upon us. 
Prayer never leaves us 
without sweetness.
  It is honey 
that flows into the souls
 and makes all things sweet. 
 When we pray properly,
 sorrows disappear 
like snow before the sun."
St. John Vianney
