I heard a question not long ago: a sad person asked, “Why does God love me?” I wanted to seek out this person and joyfully shout: “Because He has to!”
Love seeks its prey. Divine Love is a raging Fire which cannot be extinguished, a torrent of Thirst which can never be satiated.
No matter who we are, or what we have done, God cannot help Himself. He is madly in love with us.
Our unmerited good fortune is beyond belief! And if we love Him in return, what then? We give Him to drink, and He is so grateful that He draws us into union with His Divine Being, and we become lovers too! “I THIRST.” John 19: ..28
“My God, I wish to love You as you have never been loved before!”
St. Therese of Lisieux
