  2. Yes, you are so right! The answer is to love God more! That is the entire goal of our spiritual life – of our prayers, our penances, our acceptance of suffering – all to learn to love God more. Ultimately, it is our choice each moment, to love more or to love less in each thing we do…like the Little Flower, “small things with great love.”

    • Thanks Amanda. It is choice, each and every day. What so many forget is that love is a decision we must make each and every day, regardless of how we happen to be feeling at the moment. God bless you.
