A quote for to-day from The Living Flame of Love:
... He loves thee with liberality, without self-interest, only to do thee good, showing joyfully His countenance full of grace, and saying:
I am thine and for thee, and it is my pleasure to be what I am, that I may give Myself to thee and be thine.
Who then shall describe thy feeling, of blessed soul, when thus beloved, and so highly honoured?
