It is certain that the love of God does not consist in experiencing sweetness or tenderness of heart but in truly serving God in justice, strength and humility.
St. Teresa of Avila
Loving God consists not in experiencing good feelings we have when praying, but rather serving God “in justice, strength and humility,” following the way of Jesus. Pray today for the gifts you need to serve God faithfully.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
