St. Thomas Aquinas

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

“This is the attitude indicative of Holy Love in the heart. Such a one is loving, humble and always ready to forgive. He does not seek attention or praise. He is not critical in his attitude; that is, always looking for negatives in others. He is not easily offended and never presents himself as the one who must be pleased.”

“This Holy Love attitude is always foremost in his heart, moment to moment. Since it is a part of his heart, he rarely needs to be reminded. If the soul should slip up, he quickly amends his attitudes.”

“The opposite of one who lives in Holy Love is the one who is critical and judgmental by nature. He has difficulty in seeing God in other people. He presents himself as the one to be pleased or else suffer his wrath. He has difficulty forgiving others when he is wronged.”
