Principles and Practices - July 21

Fix the Real Object

God is the chief good of our souls, and should therefore be the object of all our desires and all our labours.

He created us for Him­self, and our hearts can never find rest apart from Him.

Our eternal happiness is to consist in knowing Him and loving Him, nor is our temporal happiness other than this; for we are called to begin our eternal life here and now, in an experimental knowledge and fruition of our Creator.
