Daily Thought For November 29, 2015

Love of Neighbor

We must consider our neighbor in relationship to God, Who wants us to love him ... and we are to be interested in him even when this is distasteful for us. The resistance of the inferior part of our soul will be overcome by the frequent performance of good acts. To this end, however, we must center our prayers and meditations of the love of our neighbor, having first implored the love of God. We must ask for the grace to love especially those we do not like very much. 

St. Francis de Sales (Letters 217; O. XIII, pp. 268-270)
