"We are to love God for Himself, because of a twofold reason; nothing is more reasonable, nothing more profitable."
On Loving God is first a touching description of God's love for us as a unmistakably demonstrated in the death of his Son.

As St. Bernard writes, "They love all the more, because they know themselves to be loved so exceedingly."
