I re-read this quote today and it was a consolation for me. I trust that I’ve been in God’s presence – stripped. I pray for the graces to accept His will with joy and peace, wanting nothing more than what He gives me.
"We too are called to withdraw at certain intervals into deeper silence and aloneness with God…. not with our books, thoughts, and memories but completely stripped of everything, to dwell lovingly in God’s presence – silent, empty, expectant, and motionless." ~Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
