The Common Heart

You said to me, “I am at hand.” I am at hand, at the common heart of your own being and of all things, to welcome even the wildest of your longings and to assure you that not one single fragment of what is useful in them will be lost to God. I am at hand, changeless from generation to generation, ready to save for those who are to come the treasure that would otherwise be lost today, but which the future will inherit.
