Who has been forgiven much…

IMG_8916Do not be overly concerned about your defects. Instead concentrate on having an unceasing love for Jesus, and you shall be much forgiven, because you have loved much. (Luke 7:47). However, we need to be aware of the tendency to seek the good feelings and selfish thrills of love (which are the by-products of love) instead of love itself. We can so easily deceive ourselves on this matter.

– François Fénelon, 17th century Archbishop and spiritual advisor to courtiers of Louis XIV.
