The Right Amount

We need never fear to love too much, but rather not to love enough. When we speak of loving too much, we mean in reality not loving enough; we mean loving some to the exclusion of others, and above all, we mean self-seeking and love of self. Therefore, that we may enter more fully in the spirit of our vocation, let us love more and more. Let us fear any want of sympathy, exclusiveness, local or national spirit, a tendency toward criticism. Let us love frankly, loyally, generously as Our Lord has loved us.
