—Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection as quoted in Holy Thirst: Essentials of Carmelite Spirituality
Lord, never before have these verses about your coming seemed so pertinent and the time so imminent. I want to be ready, I want to be one of your elect that you gather. Help me to listen to your Holy Spirit daily, moment by moment so that I am attuned to you more than I have ever been. Amen.
