The “Imitation of Christ” on Jesus

By Peter Darcy | On Nov 16, 2015 | No Comments | In Faith and Virtue Quotes

Let it be granted to me to find You alone, O Christ, to open to You my whole heart, to enjoy You as my soul desires, to be disturbed by no one, to be moved and troubled by no creature, that You may speak to me and I to You alone, as a lover speaks to his loved one, and friend converses with friend. (Bk IV, Ch. 13)

———-

He who finds Jesus finds a rare treasure, indeed, a good above every good, whereas he who loses Him loses more than the whole world. The man who lives without Jesus is the poorest of the poor, whereas no one is so rich as the man who lives in his grace. (Book II, Ch. 8)
