22nd Thursday in Ordinary Time

“There are in truth three states of the converted: the beginning, the middle, and the perfection. In the beginning they experience the charms of sweetness; in the middle the contests of temptation; and in the end the fullness of perfection.”
— Pope Saint Gregory the Great


Meditation of the Day
“The soul that prays enters into this upper room. It places itself in the presence of that Being who gives Himself, and it enters into communication with Him. To communicate means to have something in common and, by this common element, to be made one . . . We enter into communication with Him when we love, and in the measure of our love. The soul that loves, and that has been introduced by Love into that dwelling-place where Love abides, can speak to Him. Prayer is that colloquy.”
— Dom Augustin Guillerand
