‘Stay with us, for it is toward evening and the day is now far spent.’ So he went in to stay with them. When he was at table with them, he took the bread and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to them. And their eyes were opened and they recognized him; and he vanished out of their sight. They said to each other, ‘Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the scriptures?’

Alfred Delp: A Self-surrender at the Heart of the World
I had to re-blog this from Father Peter Nguyen on Alfred Delp. Please read it in full at the above link.
“In the Kingdom of God there is no self-made man. An open heart receives the thoughts of God. An open ear receives his guidance. Life either comes to grip with the great Heart or nothing else. One must be capable of genuine decision and devotion”
I received this prayer card over this past weekend and pulled it out today and finally read it. I needed this today and hope it does someone else as much good to pray this prayer as it has done for me.
Special thanks to CatholicPrayerCards.org for the photos and the prayers. You can purchase this card from them here
