“O my Jesus, there is no need then to say: In drawing me, draw also the souls that I love. The words ‘draw me’ suffice. When a soul has been captivated by the odor of Your perfumes she cannot run alone; as a natural consequence of her attraction toward You, all those whom she loves are drawn in her train.
“If only we were all on fire with love for God! If we were, we should preach love, proclaim love, and yet more love, until we had set the whole world on fire. We must have great desires: then God will give us whatever is best for us.” So begins this letter from St. Joachina de Vedruna, our beloved sister in Carmel.
