St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to tell you that in order for the soul to increase in faith and hope, he must pray to increase in love, for love is the foundation of every virtue. If every other virtue were likened to the lyrics of a song, love would be the melody. If every other virtue were the ingredients in a loaf of bread, love would be the yeast.”

“You see, then, that love is the passport to personal holiness, for without love all other virtues are false.”
