Cor unum et anima una in Deum (St. Augustine)

Whenever God is, there is Heaven. However quietly we speak, He is so near that He will hear us. We need no wings to go in search of Him. The Lord is within us and we should be there with Him - in this little Heaven (Saint Teresa, The Way of Perfection).

What a wonderful image! So often I am looking forward to God. Sometimes even I am sitting in the chapel waiting for Him and thinking I am alone. But it is totally wrong. Only think I need is a Prayer of Quite. In the silence of my soul I can find the most presious treasure - God himself. I do not have to do anything special to meet Him. I am able to live 'in little Heaven' already on the earth.
