A Radiance

'Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Your Spirit and Light. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may be only a radiance of Yours. Shine through me, and be so in me that every soul with whom I come in contact may feel Your Presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me, but only You, dear Jesus.'

(from The Living Pyx of Jesus by A Religious, Pelligrini 1941, p. 421)

  1. Nancy, I am new to this blog and I am speechless reading your blog. Everything you write speaks to my heart and I am in awe at the depth of wisdom and insight you have and share. Thank you! I long for this realization that you are sharing about a cloistered heart in the midst of this world. I long for HIM. You have stirred my heart and I will share your beautiful writings with my sister friends in Christ.
