- Vol. II, pg. 1794: from the The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Siena: "You are a mystery as deep as the sea; the more I search, the more I find, and the more I find the more I search for you. But I can never be satisfied; what I receive will ever leave me desiring more. When you fill my soul I have an even greater hunger, and I grow more famished for your light. I desire above all to see you, the true light, as you really are."
- Vol. III, pg. 1573: from the catechetical instructions by St. John Vianney: "The Christian's treasure is not on earth but in heaven. Our thoughts, then, ought to be directed to where our treasure is.1 This is the glorious duty of man: to pray and to love. If you pray and love, that is where a man's happiness lies. Prayer is nothing else but union with God...We had become unworthy to pray, but God in his goodness allowed us to speak with him. Our prayers are incense that gives him the greatest pleasure. 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 soul and makes all things sweet.2 When we pray properly, sorrows disappear like snow before the sun."
- Vol. IV, pg. 960: "We give thanks to God whose power is revealed in nature, and whose providence is revealed in history."
cf. St. Bernard of Clairvaux: "Jesus to me is honey in the mouth, music in the ear, a song in the heart." (Bernard of Clairvaux, On the Song of Songs, vol. I, sermon 15, no. 6, quoted in Ralph Martin, The Fulfillment of All Desire, 136) ↩
