I am reading Introduction to the devout life by De Sales, and I'm on the first meditation part and the preparation part says to place yourself in the presence of God. Does this mean I have to go to Church where Christ is Present in the tabernacle. Or can I jut be near the little prayer place in my room with the cross and a statue of our Blessed Mother?
God as creator and sustainer is everywhere at all times. While He is present in a particular and unique way in the Tabernacle what we must do, according to St Francis is see that He is always with us and always there when we turn to Him. Somewhere in that fabulous book St Francis uses the phrase "My heart, My heart, My God is truly here." This is a phrase we can say anywhere at any time and it is true, Such is the greatness of our God.
