LOVE GOD’S GOODNESS within yourself, and his immeasurable charity, which you will find in the cell of self-knowledge. In this cell you will find God. . . . I tell you, you will also find there the gentle mercy of the Holy Spirit, the aspect of God that gives and is nothing but love. Whatever the Spirit does is done because of love.
And this movement of love you will find within your own soul, because our will is nothing but love, and its every affection and movement comes from nothing but love. … Within the cell of your soul you will find the whole of God.

Contemplate God’s presence, near as your next breath. Share your thoughts.
So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day.
