Meditations by Padre Pio

Are we sufficient of ourselves to form one holy desire without grace? Certainly not! Faith teaches us this. If in a soul there is nothing else but the longing to love its God, everything else is there already, because God is not present where there is no desire of his love. Say to God: Do you want greater love from me? I have no more. Give me more, therefore, and I will offer it to you. Don't doubt: God will accept this offer.
