QUOTATION: Desire for Death
It is a sign that we love God but little, if we have no desire soon to go to see Him, feeling certain that we shall never be able to love Him more. For the meantime, let us love God as much as we can in this life. For this alone should we live to increase in our love to Him ; the measure of love to God in which death will find us, will be the measure of our love to God in a blessed eternity.
–St. Alphonsus Liguori, Preparation for Death
