“Only in love can I find You, my God.

In Love the gates of my soul spring open,

allowing me to breathe a new air of freedom

and forget my own petty self. In love my

whole being streams forth out of the rigid

confines of narrowness and anxious

self-assertion, which make me a prisoner of

my own poverty and emptiness. In love

all the powers of my soul flow out toward

you, wanting never to return, but to lose

themselves completely in you, since by your

love you are the inmost center of my heart,

closer to me than I am to myself. Amen

Fr. Karl Rahner, S. J.
