A Little Cell

Discovered a new heavenly companion today!

Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity [1880-1906], a Carmelite Nun not unlike many others, known and unknown, who simply poured herself out in fidelity to her vocation.

She must have had tremendous faith for it is reported that as she was dying her last words were: “ I am going to Light, to Love, to Life!”

On the site where I often discover new heavenly companions http://www.catholic-forum.com/saints/indexsnt.htm there is this quotation which really touched my heart:

“ Make a little cell in your heart for Jesus of the Agony; take refuge there, when you hear Him outraged by men, try to make reparation; you, at least, love Him and keep your heart quite pure for Him. Oh! If you only knew how the good God loves pure hearts! It is there that He loves to reign.”

In the midst of terrorism, abortion, and all the other chaos of the culture of death my prayer is countless will be those who will make and enter such little cells for Jesus.

Divine Mercy is His lavishness – let’s make reparation our lavishness of gratitude.
