the inner secret

I recently received an e-mail from "Joy," who wrote:  
"Who doesn't need a peaceful and holy place to go in the madness of the world today?  And there it is right within us - it could not be closer.  We just have to be made aware of it…" 

With this in mind, I was touched to come across the following quote:  "Christ is held by the mind knowing Him and the heart loving Him...  what is this room except the inner secret of your own person?  Keep this inner room clean, so that when it is pure, unstained by sin, your spiritual home may stand as a priestly temple with the Holy Spirit dwelling in it.  One who seeks and entreats Christ is never abandoned, but visited by Him frequently, for He stays always with us."  (St. Ambrose)
