Toward the Depths

"The more we pray, the more we wish to pray.  Like a fish which at first swims on the surface of the water and afterwards plunges down, and is always going deeper; the soul plunges, dives, and loses itself in the sweetness of conversing with God."  (St. John Vianney)

I typed this quote with the intention of elaborating on it.  But why should I do any such thing?  For me, this says it all.

It's time to dive.

"You too shall seek the Lord, your God, and you shall indeed find Him when you search after Him with your whole heart and your whole soul."  (Deuteronomy 4:29)

"The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth."  (Psalm 145:18)
