QuotationDom Porion sent me his delightful book on the Holy Trinity and the interior life, and on every page I found echoes of my own deepest interests and preoccupations. It is a beautiful book, especially beautiful in its simplicity. I close with the assurance that I remember you in my Mass, which remains my greatest joy, and I feel that Our Lord is pouring out the love of His Heart upon all my dear friends through this Sacrifice which He has given me the privilege of offering each day for them.
