To Nourish This Love

                          'Everything leads us to the love of our Lord.
                          All things nourish and feed this love...
                          It lives on our sorrows and consoles them; 
                          It lives on our sufferings and rewards them;
                          It lives on our sacrifices and makes them precious;
                          It lives on our pleasures and adds to them;
                          It lives on our hopes and fulfills them;
                          And in a word it will create our happiness,
                          Now and for ever.'

                                          from 'Listening to the Indwelling Presence" by a Religious, Pellegrini, , 1940, p. 5
