Heartburn of a Just Soul

Avoid counting what you give to this good Master,
or measuring what you lack.
Throw yourself like a piece of straw or rusty iron into the burning fire.
How quickly you will be purified,
quickly renewed, quickly enkindled, quickly inflamed!
Yes! yes!
the most pleasing sacrifice to Jesus is one's self;
the most pleasing homage is one's heart;
the most pleasing crown is that of the morning glory flower
which opens to the rising of the sun and closes at its setting.

-St.Peter Julian Eymard, letter, Oct.17, 1861
