Peaceful Fear of the Lord

Whoever has loved more, has more fear of giving displeasure to the beloved.  This fear, however, does not disquiet, but gives peace, because it makes the soul humble itself more, in the measure that it sees itself more favored by God.  I want this to be your equipment for receiving even greater gifts from God.  Let your soul fly into God and burn with His love
