The Heart Of The Matter


 “God bestows more consideration on the purityst Augustine6 of the intention with which our actions are performed than on the actions themselves.”

                                                                      -St. Augustine

 b1524l“My beloved Jesus, I desire to follow with you the rule of love, the rule of the will of God, by which I can renew and spend my whole life in You. Place it in the care of Your Holy Spirit, so that at all times I shall be prompt to keep Your commandments and fulfill all my duites. I am only a poor twig, but You can make me flourish in the abundance of Your Spirit…”
