As simplistic as it may seem, perhaps the remainder of his sentence provides the answer for me. . . . "for those who love God." Perhaps if my life were, like St. Teresa of Calcutta, love would be my clear motive for thinking, acting, desiring, accepting all that fills my life. If love fills me, then negativity, rudeness, despair, unacceptance, --------and more of the human reactions I excuse myself of when things and people are difficult ---- all these ways of coping with or surviving difficulties would have no room to live and grow in me. There would only be room for LOVE.
St. Teresa of Calcutta, pray for me.
