Salesian Quote of the Day

Always remember to retire at various times into the solitude of your own heart even while outwardly engaged in discussions or transactions with others. This mental solitude cannot be violated by the many people who surround you, since they are not standing around your heart but only around your body. Your heart remains alone in the presence of God. ~ Saint Francis de Sales: Divine solitude, Introduction to the Devout Life
