At Home Everywhere

'As we carry Him within our hearts,
we shall be at home everywhere. 
Daily we can increase our intimacy
with the Divine Guest of our soul
by perfect indifference
as to place, people,
employments and all the rest.
Then, as Saint Paul says,
we shall be conquerors
even in this world,
for to conquer is to
grow in union with Our Lord;
a union that consists not in feeling,
but in perfect conformity
to His adorable Will.' 

(from Fervorinos From Galilee's Hills, compiled by a Religious, Pelligrini, Australia, 1936, pp. 83-84)
