St Bernard of Clairvaux,12th century

“Keep the word of God in that way for ‘blessed are they who keep it’.  Let it pierce deep into your inmost soul and penetrate your feelings and actions. Eat well and your soul will delight and grow.  Do not forget to eat your bread or your heart will wither, but let your soul feast richly.

If you keep the word of God in this way without a doubt you will be kept by it.” 

Luke 11:9

“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
