"If I love God, I love what He is: life, compassion, forgiveness, beauty. If I love God, I fight for respect for human rights, for freedom, and for justice."

what I wanted to do was not a good mortification (what was better, poverty or charity?); that since love was the better, I shouldn’t renounce anything that awakened my love
