Loving

These things I command you, that ye love one another.

JOHN 15:17


YET habits linger in the soul;

More grace, O Lord! more grace!

More sweetness from Thy loving heart,

More sunshine from Thy face!

FREDERICK W. FABER


IF thy disturbance of mind proceeds from a person who is so disagreeable to thee, that every little action of his annoys or irritates thee, the remedy is to force thyself to love him, and to hold him dear; not only because he is a creature formed by the same sovereign hand as thou art, but also because he offers thee an opportunity (if thou wilt accept it) of becoming like unto thy Lord, who is kind and loving unto all men.

LORENZO SCUPOLI


The habit of letting every foolish or uncharitable thought, as it arises, find words, has a great deal to do with much evil in the world. Check the habit of ut­tering the words, and gradually you will find that you check the habit of thought too. A resolution always to turn to some distinctly good thought when a complaining or unkind one arises in the mind, is a great help--as it is to turn every thought condemna­tory of our neighbor into a prayer for him. We never can long continue to dislike people for whom we pray.
