God is the Cause of Loving God

'God is the cause of loving God....
He Himself creates the longing.
He Himself fulfills the desire....
Kindly, He leads the way.
He repays us justly.
He is our sweet hope.
He is riches to all who call upon Him.  
There is nothing better than Himself.  
He gave Himself in merit.  
He keeps Himself to be our reward.'

St. Bernard of Clairvaux

Painting:  El Greco, St. Francis Receiving the Stigmata
