*Spiritual Visit....................February 27




Keep HIM company this Lent

"When you awake in the night,
transport yourself quickly
IN SPIRIT
before the Tabernacle,
saying: Behold, my God,
I come to adore You,
to praise, thank, and love you,
and to keep your company
with all the Angels."

St. John Vianney

(At the top:)"The meeting-place of reverent souls"(At the bottom:)"Come to me, all you who toil and collapse under the burden of your sorrows, and I will give you relief!"

Dearest Micki,

Greetings Micki! Thank you for posting yet another "Treasure" for all of us to enjoy! I got chills as I read the text for today also, very moving and I am going to try to incorporate this beautiful prayer into my daily devotions. I have insominia often and this text will help me to do just what it says with God's Grace! A blessed evening to all of your visitors and to you as well. John K.

Friends,

Sorry, but I overlooked the words on this card yesterday.

Here is the meaning of the French words:

(At the top:)
"The meeting-place of reverent souls"

(At the bottom:)
"Come to me, all you who toil and collapse under the burden of your sorrows, and I will give you relief!"

Prayerflowers - Yes, a grace and food we crave. Blessings.

Eric - Thank you, me too.

John K. - I know what you mean about "insominia"...I think it's also a good idea to put this into practice. Hope you continue to remember this when needed.

John - A big thank you again for your added help with my cards.

A Blessed Lenten season to you - this is a wonderful thing to remember - I rarely sleep a night through and I pray when I wake but I never thought to imagine myself before a Tabernacle - I love it.

St. Blog - Glad this gave you further inspiration for those non-sleeping moments. Say one for me too. Thank you.
