“Love does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity — but rejoices in the truth, bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:5-8

O my heavenly Father, I desire to love You and my neighbor with a pure heart fervently, and entreat that You would let me know and enjoy Your love in Christ, as the only means of producing this love in me.

For how can my heart be cold, when resting at the cross of Christ and feeling the virtue of His blood?
Or how can it be hard when lying in Your bosom, richly tasting of Your grace, and sweetly experiencing Your everlasting love to me, a vile and miserable sinner?
Or how can it be destitute of love and gratitude, when dwelling on the fullness of the manifestation of Your Divine mercy?

May a sense of Your love melt my hard heart into love and entirely transform it. There is nothing that I need so much as love.

There is nothing I find so difficult as love.

To love and pity sinners.
To love and bear with saints.
To love and cleave to Jesus.
To love and exercise unhesitating confidence in God, under all circumstances.

Ah, this is difficult! But grace can make me lowly and loving; may that grace in abundance be given me, O my God!
