Thoughts on the Love of God
...What more could God do for us, what more could He give us?
He is our best, our dearest, our most loving Father, and He commands us to call Him by this loving name, "Our Father, Who art in Heaven."
All the mothers and fathers of the whole Earth do not love us so tenderly, so really, as our sweet Lord does.
If we only meditate on all this, we must love God.
But also, in all our prayers, our first, most important, our principal intention should be to ask God for His love, more love, more love.
There is nothing He gives us more readily, more abundantly, than His blessed love.
We all desire to have a good friend, a friend who really loves us and is always ready to help us.
A man loves his wife and she him, and this is their greatest happiness.
A mother loves her children. There is no love on Earth so wonderful as the love of a mother.
But God's love for us is more real, more true and gives us more happiness than all the love of wives and husbands and friends and mothers.
To think that the great God of Heaven loves me with infinite love, tender, personal love!
