Writer's Wednesday - M. Eugene Boylan

All that is necessary for any Christian in order to seek the summits of divine love, is to live in faith, hope, charity, humility, and willing abandonment to God's will. The teaching of the popes, the tradition of the whole Church, as we saw, all proclaim that all God seeks is our love. He does not ask for miracles, for great achievements, for extraordinary success, for outstanding personal development. The only thing He asks is so extraordinary--for it is a love entirely beyond our powers--that we must rely upon Him to give it to us Himself; hence no need despair of achieving it.

...all that is needed is that we make the ordinary things of our ordinary life one long act of love of God by purity of intention and fraternal charity.
