Principles and Practices - November 10

Have A Supernatural Intention

Let everyone have a pure intention, not only for the state of life they have chosen, but also in their private work, resolving always sincerely to please God from the motive of love of His Divine goodness, considered in itself and its benefits, rather than from the fear of pain or the hope of a reward, although they may be assisted by these latter motives.
