"Remain in my love. Do you know what it means to remain in my love? It means to have with Jesus the same love, feeling, and being. It means to suffer, no looking at the earth but at the cross, loving with patience, constancy, and enjoyment. it means to follow a life of prayer, self-denial, and purity without leaving me, without being dissipated by the things of this world, without being troubled by adversity of any kind. It means always to be willing to fight again after each misfortune: it means to love, to love and to know that love makes everything that is difficult easy and everything that is bitter, sweet."
