A Perpetual Hymn

"We cannot go to Jesus in the Tabernacle at every moment of the day, but we can turn inward to the Triune God at any moment, even in the midst of our day's worst difficulties.  Indeed, for the soul that has attained to intimacy with Jesus, whose endeavour it is to identify herself with her heart's permanent Guest... her entire life is no more than a perpetual recourse to her Beloved.  At each moment of the day, implicitly or explicitly, she makes herself one with the inclinations of His Blessed Will.  She mingles her own weak voice with those Infinitely Pure Tones that, from the Soul of Jesus, ascend without ceasing to the Eternal Father.  Her love is a perpetual hymn with Jesus to the Glory of God" 
(The Living Pyx of Jesus. Pelligrini, 1941, p. 27)
