“He is always looking at you; can you not turn the eyes of your soul to look at Him?”–St. Teresa of Avila
“Hide yourself, my love; turn your face toward the mountains, and do not speak; but look at those companions going with her through strange lands.” Stanza 19 The Spiritual Canticle –St. John of the Cross
“It is Your continual desire to associate Yourself with Your creatures…How can I better satisfy Your desire than by keeping myself simply and lovingly turned towards You, so that You can reflect Your own image in me, as the sun is reflected through pure crystal?”–Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity
“We were all sinners till our latest hour/… when light from Heaven made us wise to see our sins,/ and we repented and forgave,/ leaving our lives at last in peace with God,/ who now torments our hearts with the desire,/ to see His Face.” ~Dante
