Principles and Practices - November 14

Deep Calleth to Deep

We ought not to cease from prayer until we are found worthy to drink of the waters of this fountain. For if we can taste but one little drop of it, we shall no longer thirst for vain things and failing creatures, but for God alone, for the love of God alone. The more we grow in this love, the more shall we increase in divine union; and the more perfectly we become united to God and the deeper we are immersed in Him, the more clearly shall we know Him in Him­self and through Himself; while again, the more clearly we know Him, the more ardently shall we love Him.
