Words to Live by – from Catholic Tradition
The Voice of Christ:
What more do I ask than that you give yourself entirely to Me? I care not for anything else you may give me, for I seek not your gift but you. Just as it would not be enough for you to have everything if you did not have Me, so whatever you give cannot please Me if you do not give yourself.
The Imitation of Christ, by Thomas à Kempis, Book IV, ch. 8 (emphasis added).
