Come Close to the Crib

Let us come close to the crib.
If you love riches, you will find the gold that the kings brought;
if you are looking for the smoke of hours, you will find that in the incense;
and if you take delight in the delicacies of the senses,
you will find the delicate perfume of myrrh that pervades the stable.

Be rich in love for this adorable Saviour,
respectful in the familiarity with which you relate to Him,
and delight in the joy of experiencing in your soul
so many inspirations and affections,
because you belong exclusively to

(St. Francis de Sales)
