Quote of the day, 18 April: Madame Acarie

Ah, how much we must love God who is so good, who has loved us so much! If we find difficulty in anything, it’s because we don’t love God.

When will we finally give him everything and hold nothing back for ourselves? There is nothing owed to us and everything is due to God. Let’s serve him for who he is.

How happy we are to be able to do something for the service of God!
