Just for Today, November 17

Note: As previously discussed here, this is the last meditation/reflection from the little book, "Just for Today". I hope the next set of reflections will be beneficial.

O that with Thy presence thou wouldst enflame, burn, and transform me into Thyself, that I may be made one spirit with Thee, by the grace of internal union and by the melting of ardent love!
-Bk. IV, ch. xvi.

If Thy justice loves to stay its course upon earth, how much more must not Thy merciful love wish to enflame souls, for Thy mercy is in heaven (Ps. xxxv, 5). O Jesus, may I be the favoured victim...consume Thy little host in the fire of divine love!

-The Story of a Soul (L'Histoire d'une Âme).
