Our Lord asks but two things of us: Love for him
and for our neighbour.
These are what we must strive to obtain.
I think the most certain sign
that we keep these two commandments
is that we have a genuine love for others.
We cannot know whether we love God,
although there may be strong reasons for thinking so,
but there can be no doubt about whether we love our neighbour or no.
~ St. Teresa of Avila, from ‘The Interior Castle’ ~
Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near.
