The Teachings of the Saints - LOVE OF GOD

"God has loved us from all eternity. Children of men, says the Lord, remember that I frist loved you. You had not yet been born, the world itself did not exist, and even then I loved you. As long as I am God, I have loved you; I have loved you as long as I have loved Myself" St Liguori

"The love of God is never idle. When it really fills a soul, it never fails to operate great things in it. Whenever it does not work, but is is inactive, we may be certain there is no true love, but only the appearance of it" St Gregory

~~~

"Two loves have made two different cities: self-love hath made a terrestrial city, which rises in contempt of God; and Divine Love hath made a celestial one, which rises in contempt of self. The former glories in itself-the latter in God" St Augustine

"To love God as He ought to be loved, we must be detached from all terestrial love; we must love nothing but Him, or if we love anything else, we must love it only for his sake" St Thomas
