I tend to think ugliness is a greater gift from God than beauty. Cheesy

This one makes me think, 'it is hard to obey when we do not love the one whom we obey', and how far I have to change.

It is so true Shin. When we do not obey God, can we honestly still profess to love Him above all else?
I know that for most of us, we really want to obey God in all things but sometimes the body is weak. Take my case yesterday. It was First Friday and I wanted to go for the all night prayers which include two Masses;  one at around 9.30 pm and the second one at around 5.30 am the next morning to conclude the vigil. It was raining and cold, there was a snarl up of traffic and by the time I reached home I was hungry and tired. ( all excuses I know for not going to church!). I ended up not going. Can I honestly say that I love God above all else when my comfort seemed more important? Sad
This is the question I am grappling with.

This is why I see virtue and understanding what it is as so important.

If I can see a particular virtue in Christ, and in a saint, and understand how it is properly practiced, I can aim for and pray for it to be learned by myself. I.e. then I know at least, what the goal is in a particular case.

And I have to keep praying to love God more! God help us!

Yes, let us pray for as Saint John Vianney said,

What prayer could be more true before God the Father than that which the Son, who is Truth, uttered with His own lips?

Very inspiring!

I am still moved by the obedience quote. I keep coming back to it and it is helping motivate me to do the work to change my habits.

Yes, what I am absorbing from the Forum is helping me too.
When I come across quotes like that I treasure them.
