Daily with De Sales: 10/5/07

Do you want to know with what kind of love you should love your neighbor? With the same love with which God loves us. We must draw this love from the heart of the Eternal Father, so that it will be pure, firm, solid, constant and unchanging. Our love should not depend on a person's qualities or good fortune, nor should it be subject to the changes and dislikes that often occur in our relationships with others. In this way, even if something should happen that displeases us, our love will not grow less.
-- Sermons 22; O. IX, pp. 200-201
