The Loveliest Valentine

I received in the mail the loveliest Valentine from a friend. How could she know what I'd been praying about for the past few weeks, what my heart was longing for? We correspond sporadically. But somehow she knew! Some things are meant to be secret, but I will share the quote she wrote on her beautiful little handmade card that will be my Lenten companion.

Build an oratory within yourself; and there have Jesus on the altar of your heart. ~ St. Paul of the Cross

Wishing you all a blessed Lent.
