Meditations by Padre Pio

You must always have prudence and love. Prudence has the eyes; love has the legs. Love which has the legs would like to run to God, but its impulse to rush towards Him is blind and at times might stumble, if it were not guided by prudence which has the eyes. When prudence sees that love could become unbridled it loans its eyes to love. In this way love restrains itself and, guided by prudence, acts as it should and not as it would like.
