Virtue...


"Some pursue their own taste and satisfaction in spiritual things,
in preference to the way of perfection,
which consists in denying their own wishes and tastes
for the love of God,
If such persons perform some exercise through obedience,
even though it suit their inclination,
they soon lose the wish for It,
and all devotion in It,
because their only pleasure is in doing what their own will directs,
which ordinarily would be better left undone.
The Saints did not act thus"


St. John of the Cross
