He is a beggar of love

"Are you afraid of the eyes of God? Pay attention! How can you stop just like that and fool yourself uttering pretexts and reservations in your own solitude? You stay there, calmed, with all the excuses you invent, putting before you I don't know what obligations that seem more urgent than the Love of God?

Look, the Lord calls your your door. He is a beggar of love. And don't [let] these words scandalize you. The truest [thing] is that He has come before you, calling your silence and your intimacy... You leave Him alone instead of your occupations?"
