"Lord Jesus, our Savior, let us now come to you: Our hearts are cold; Lord, warm them with your selfless love. Our hearts are sinful; cleanse them with your precious blood. Our hearts are weak; strengthen them with your joyous Spirit. Our hearts are empty; fill them with your divine presence. Lord Jesus, our hearts are yours; possess them always and only for yourself.” (Prayer of Augustine, 354-430)
"The Father is unceasingly knocking on your door. He is knocking not only with the truth about the whitewashed tomb of your soul, but also with His mercy, ready to pour it over your misery at every moment."(Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock, pg. 20)
"When Christ gives us this commandment, He is telling us to love the other person as He loves this person, so that we die to ourselves and embrace the Cross."
(Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock, pg. 87)
