This is our life’s work: that Christ should come to fill the whole of our existence. Oportet ileum crescere … Then our joy will know no bounds. In the measure in which Christ, through knowledge and love, penetrates more and more into our poor lives, so will our joy overflow. ~Fr. Francis Fernandez Carvajal, In Conversation with God
