Today’s quote:

For you brothers, who are in a position to work at acquiring virtue, strive for that of openness to God’s Will, for, if it pleases God that you obtain it, you’ll have the source of virtues and the death of vices. If you want another reason to have a great love for it, the truth is that the person who’s open to God’s Will belongs wholly to God, God is everything to him, and everything else is nothing.

Vincent de Paul (Volume: 12 | Page#: 197) Indifference, 15 May, 1659

How true is this of me? Is my heart only for God?
