“In your prayer, seek to nourish yourself on God, rather than...humbling yourself. To do this: nourish your mind with the truth personified in God’s goodness towards you...his personal love; here is the secret of true prayer. See the action and mind of God IN HIS LOVE FOR YOU! Then, in wonder, your soul will cry out... ‘How good you are my God. What can I do for you? What will please you?’ There is the fire of the furnace."
St. Peter Eymard
