However, the feeling of duty commands me, and prayer supports and consoles me. My soul expands and exalts itself at the foot of the altars of our God. There, those I love - your parents, you, and all my loved ones - have their true share. The sweetest and most indestructible bond unites me constantly to your dear souls, and in mine is superabundant the ineffable certainty that He who calls us will not forsake us, but that He hears us and listens to us"... Mary was particularly present to him this week, ...] I have therefore prayed to the Queen of Angels and Saints to intercede for you, so that, unswervingly firm in faith, you may taste the patient joys of hope and the holy ardour of divine love. And since my poor music has rekindled your devotion to St. Elizabeth, let me share with you again the pure emotions of a book dedicated to the glorification of this saint", by Alban Stolz, to be read with recollection...
