“Christ doesn’t expect us to submit to a cold, impersonal, moral law, but rather that, at every moment of our lives, we should deny our will, our preferences, our desires, so that we obey His word and His divine initiatives, so that we abandon ourselves with confidence to whatever He allows to befall us, because we love Him, because we prefer Him to all else, because in every circumstance, we want to show Him our love, in return for* His. A love which will be expressed with our words, prayers and actions, even with our silence, full of confidence and self-abandonment towards Him.”
(Elder Placide Deseille+ quoted in pemptousia.com)
