Sophie's well

Go to the Heart of Jesus and draw from it, and when you need more, go back to the Source and draw again. 

~ St Madeleine Sophie, in an 1807 letter to Philippine Duchesne

Time and again, as I read things written by Sophie, I come across these words - go... draw - in relation to the Heart of Jesus. In the 1815 Constitutions, for example, the novices were to go to the Heart of Jesus to draw from it a love of charity or poverty. Elsewhere, whether in conferences or personal letters, the same advice; the same words - go, draw, source.
