O, how… you should be overwhelmed with joy when you are visited… by the interior graces that you receive daily from His divine Majesty by means of so many inspirations and words that He speaks to your hearts! For He is always near, knocking and speaking to you about what He desires you to do for His love… You should listen to him with great attention, and faithfully and promptly carry out his divine will!
The true mark of a divine visitation is transformation.
--François de Sales, Oeuvres 9:168 & 10:76.
