Do you turn away?

“If, like the young man in the Gospel, we turn our backs and go away sad when the Lord tells us what we must do to be perfect, what do you want His Majesty to do? For He must give the reward in conformity with the LOVE we have for Him. And this love, daughters, must not be fabricated in our imaginations but proved by deeds. And don’t think He needs our works; HE NEEDS THE DETERMINATION OF OUR WILLS.”

—St. Teresa of Avila
