The Dominican at prayer

Every night, after his friars
had gone to bed,
St. Dominic would go to the church,
and there, near the Lord,

spend the long exacting hours of the night in prayer
where he found interior consolation,
solace, secret joys, ineffable delights,
which our Lord poured out from His enchanting Heart
in this holy Sacrament of love.”
