"When He finds a soul penetrated with a lively faith,
He pours into it His graces and favors plentifully.
There they flow like a torrent,
which, after being forcibly stopped
against its ordinary course,
when it has found a passage,
spreads itself with impetuosity and abundance.
Yes, we often stop this torrent
by the little value we set upon it.
But let us stop it no more.
Let us enter into ourselves
and break down the bank which hinders it.
Let us make way for grace.
Let us redeem the lost time"- Brother Lawrence
