Principles and Practices - June 9

Ask God for Zeal

O my Sovereign Good, in the midst of the overwhelming sweetness and interior consolations which the soul enjoys with Thee, she is sorrowful when she thinks of the great multi­tude of those who reject these heavenly joys, and of the number of unhappy souls who will lose them for ever.

She seeks, then, by every means, to increase the number of Thy friends, and willingly sacrifices her repose to the hope of enkindling in others a desire for the happiness which she enjoys.
