"Charity gave me the key to my vocation. I understood that the Church had a Heart and that this Heart was burning with love. I understood that Love comprised all vocations, that Love was everything, that it embraced all times and a word, that it was eternal! My vocation, at last I have found it...My vocation is Love!"

Feast of the Transfiguration

When He tells us that Jesus is His beloved Son, the Father reveals to us His life; and when we believe in this revelation, we participate in the knowledge of God himself. The Father knows the Son in endless glory; as for us, we know him in the shadows of faith whilst awaiting the light of eternity. The Father declares the Babe of Bethlehem, the Youth of Nazareth, the Preacher of Judea, the Victim of Calvary is his Son, his well-beloved Son; our faith is to believe this. It is an excellent thing in the spiritual life to have this testimony of the Father ever present, as it were, before the eyes of the heart. Nothing upholds our faith so powerfully.
--Blessed Columba Marmion
