The Fragrance of Our Lord...

Primrose by Mucha

"Our Lord has ascended into heaven,
 so I can only follow Him 
by means of the traces He has left behind Him. 
But, they are so full of light, 
so full of fragrance!  
One glance of the Holy Gospel, 
and the life of Jesus 
becomes a perfume 
that fills the very air I breathe
I know at once which way to run."

(Taken in part from 'Carmelite Asceticism' by Very Rev. Father Anastastius of The Holy Rosary, O.C.D.)
