Principles and Practices - May 17

Real Devotion

This resolution is not the fruit of a passing ardour or of a heated imagination; it is confirmed by innumerable acts of renuncia­tion and mortification, it has its abode in the depths of the will, it persists continually and subconsciously, and the least important acts of life performed in this disposition, which is that of perfect love, are of great value in the eyes of God.
