warmed by the Son

"Do not be surprised at having distractions or at being cold and weary at prayer, as these are the effects of the sensitive and emotional part of our being and of the heart, over which we have little control.  For these we should not give up going to Holy Communion, because no one can better recollect our spirit than its King; nothing can better warm it than the Sun, nothing can better sweeten it than such balm."  (St. Francis de Sales, letter)
