Moments of Visitation

From Divine Intimacy by Father Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalene. O.C.D.

9th Sunday after Pentecost
"Do you know how to recognize the moments in which Our Lord visits your soul?  A word read or heard, perhaps even by chance, an edifying example, an interior inspiration, a new light which makes you see your faults more clearly and opens new horizons of virtue and of good - all are visits from Jesus.  And you, how do you correspond?  Is your soul sensitive to these lights, to these admonitions?  Do you not sometimes turn your gaze away, fearing that the light you have glimpsed may ask you for sacrifices which are too painful for your self-love?"
