S. TERESA OF AVILA and the Love of God

'Those who really love God love all good, seek all good, help forward all good, praise all good and invariably join forces with good men and help and defend them.  They love truth and things worthy of love.  Do you think it possible that those who really and truly love God can love vanities, riches, worldly pleasures and honours?  Can he engage in strife or feel envy?  No, his only desire is to please the beloved.' (The Interior Castle.  Ch.3)
