"Man's merits are not to be estimated by his having many visions or consolations, nor by his knowledge of Scriptures, nor by his being placed in a more elevated station; but by his being grounded in true humility, and replenished with divine charity". (Imitation of Christ Bk 3)
No sudden splendour broke the grey
And even tenor of your days,
No ecstasy made you forget
Your poverty in its bright rays
Mary, the lowliest can tread
With confidence the path you trod,
Your life the bright and shining star
That leads the wayfarer to God.
(St Therese, Poems)

"My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely" - Song of Songs 2:14.
