Frances de Sales ( 1567 - 1622 )

On Loving God

A heart full of love loves the commandments and the more difficult it seems, the more sweet and pleasing they become because it pleases the Beloved and gives Him more honor.”

“Oh, to love or to die; or to die or to love.”es the Beloved and gives Him more honor.”

 “The pleasure and the movement of the will towards kind things is properly speaking, Love.”

“I wanted to love not knowing what to love. I have found he who my soul searched for!”


“Complacency is an awareness of the heart; love is the action.”

“A sign that we love truly love God is that we love Him the same in all occasions.” 

 “Love is the perfection of the spirit and charity is the perfection of love.”

“The perfection of life is the perfection of love. Love is the life of the soul.”

“Some are tormented searching for the way to love God. These poor souls do not know there is no method to love Him apart from doing what pleases Him.”

“Love is a movement, an effusion and a step from
the heart towards goodness.”
