Just for Today, April 17

Happy are they who penetrate into internal things, and endeavor to prepare themselves more and more, by daily exercises, for the attaining to heavenly secrets. Mind these things, O my soul, and shut the doors of thy senses, that thou mayest hear what the Lord thy God speaks within thee.

-Bk. III, ch. i.

A child of light am I, who oft
Neglect to trade aright,
And let my shining talent lie
Forgotten, out of sight.
The Gospel is a mine of gold
Love only can explore:
Teach me to find its hidden wealth,
The secrets of its lore!
