The cleft in the rock...
Saint Madeleine Sophie loved the Canticle of Canticles. She especially loved the image of the "cleft in the rock" and I do, too. The altar base in the Chapel at St. Thomas University is made of natural rock found and brought from Key West. It has two clefts in the rock that call me to prayer. Here are a couple of quotes from St. Madeleine Sophie:
"Make an empty space before the plenitude in front of the Eucharist. Renew yourself in the wounds of Jesus Christ, expecially in the one on the side; it's ours. Afterwards live a new and joyous life."
"Goodbye, my daughter, I leave you because I am in a hurry. I counted on staying in the cleft of the rock but I have work to do: talk, write, as usual."
