Quote of the day, 1 September: St. Teresa Margaret

I propose to have no other purpose in all my activities, either interior or ex­terior, than the motive of love alone, by constantly asking myself: “Now what am I doing in this action? Do I love God?” If I should notice any obstacle to pure love, I shall take myself in hand and recall that I must seek to return my love for His love.
