Willing to love Him (St. Francis de Sales)

   If you ask me, What can I do to acquire the love of God?, I answer:  By willing to love Him; and instead of setting to work to try and find out how you can unite your soul to God, put the thing in practice by a continual application of your mind to Him, and I assure you that you will arrive much more quickly at your object by this means than by any other.  For the more we pour ourselves out, the less recollected we shall be, and the less capable of union with the divine Majesty, Who would have all we are without reserve.
--St. Francis de Sales,
