“I take up my pen today, as always,
to go on praising God.
I would like to speak only of Jesus,
not of myself, but within me, so deep,
I possess Got.
It’s so wonderful, the work He is doing in my soul, that,
in the revelation of what is happening to me,
a poor sinner, in my relations with him,
I glorify him.

-San Rafael Arnaiz
