"Love of God"

 "Love of God," Saint Maximos the Confessor writes, "is a virtuous tendency of the soul, and he who has it desires nothing of created things over the love of God. However, it is impossible to maintain such love when one feels even the slightest inclination toward worldly things. He who loves God lives an Angelic life on earth. He fasts, is watchful, prays, and always has good thoughts about his fellow man."
