Still water and the Heart of Jesus
One of my favorite images to begin prayer is going down into still, deep water and entering into a cleft in the rock and then abiding in the Heart of Jesus where I am surrounded by love. I guess the above picture called forth this sharing. I was thinking how often I find myself wordless in His heart. There is a line that has meant so much to me; it is from a circular letter of Reverend Mother de Lescure to the Society of the Sacred Heart in 1949 and says "the solitude of His heart is a crushing reality." We are called to people the solitude of His heart, to descend to the depths and abide with Him.
