A favorite quote of mine is “…the love of God does not consist in tears or in this delight and tenderness, which for the greater part we desire and find consolation in; but it consists in serving with justice and fortitude of soul and in humility.  Without such service it seems to me we would be receiving everything and giving nothing.” (The Book of Her Life, Chapter 12:13)
