I believe that, since our nature is bad, we will not reach perfection in the love of neighbor if that love doesn't rise from love of God as its root.
St. Teresa of Avila
True love of neighbor is grounded in the love of God, who continually purifies our love. As you pray today, ask that you learn how to root your heart in God’s love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
