“What a weakness it is to love Jesus Christ only when He caresses us, and to be cold immediately when He afflicts us. This is not true love. Those who love thus, love themselves too much to love God with all their heart.”
~St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
Ponder this quotation in light of the Holy Father’s definition of love as an act of total self-donation. Am I truly willing to love God and others in this way?
