"Mine are the heavens and mine is the earth; mine are the peoples, the righteous are mine and the sinners; the angels are mine and the Mother of God; and all things are mine; and God himself is mine and for me, for Christ is mine and all for me. What, then, do you ask for and seek, my soul? Yours is all this, and it is all for you."

- St John of the Cross (1542-1591) -
