The mystery of the spiritual life is that Jesus desires to meet us in the seclusion of our own heart, to make his love known to us there, to free us from our fears and to make our deepest selves known to us.

In the privacy of our heart, therefore, we can learn not only to know Jesus but, through Jesus, ourselves as well.
