Come to Me

“Jesus is making you, like all those who love him with sincere and pure hearts, increasingly hear his very loving threefold invitation: ‘Come to me . . . Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me.’ May this very sweet invitation from the Master comfort you in this new trial – or to be more precise, this increase in divine favor. I can truly say that your new state is a very special favor from the Lord, a favor he accords only to those valiant souls that his mercy makes more precious to him. -St. Pio
