While Crowds Pass

'Jesus lives in the solitude of the Tabernacle. 
Crowds pass, eager or despairing, in the conflict of human existence, 
in the persistent or reckless pursuits of pleasure. 
All are occupied with their material concerns, with the affairs of home. 
Few give thought to the Divine Lover who dwells amongst them.
Those alone know His divine charm who, like Mary and Joseph,
interweave human activity with the divine activity of self-surrender.
For them, the Tabernacle is the actual meeting place of lovers of Jesus with Himself.
There, they find abundance of spiritual energy and fullness of life.'

from 'Listening to the Indwelling Presence' by a Religious, Pelligrini, 1940, pp. 399-400
