Today’s Reflection September 3

Loving Jesus means preferring him to everything else, longing to know him more and more, trying to be one with him all our lives in thought and action, loving our brothers in complete selflessness, and finally, and this is perhaps the surest sign, loving the cross and seeing the value of the suffering, self-sacrifice, and renunciation which should characterize our lives. That is what I wanted to tell you. It is the only thing I regard as important, because apart from loving God with our whole being, nothing matters.

– Father Rene Voillaume
