Fire of Love

"The man (or woman)
who burns with the fire of divine love
is a son (or daughter)
of the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
and wherever he goes,
he enkindles that flame;
he desires and works
with all his strength
to inflame all men
with the fire of God's love.

Nothing deters him:
he rejoices in poverty;
he labours strenuously;
he welcomes hardships;
he laughs off false accusations;
he rejoices in anguish.

He thinks only of how
he might follow Jesus Christ
and imitate him by his prayers,
his labours, his sufferings,
and by caring always and only
for the glory of God
and the salvation of souls."
-- St Anthony Mary Claret--
