Daily with De Sales: 10/28/07

God is greater than our heart, and our heart is greater than the world. So when our heart in meditation prepares itself to do all it can in the service of God, it works marvels and raises our actions to a degree of uncommon perfection. It is determined to serve the Lord and honor Him, to help our neighbor, to mortify our internal and external feelings and carry out other good resolutions. Now all this perfection, even though it is not in proportion to the greatness of God, is greater than the world and all human forces and exterior actions.
-- Letters 190; O. XII, pp. 203-204
