Dear God, let me not become emanored of my own works. If I do good in this world, let it not be out of pride nor desperation to rise in your esteem.

You love me equally whether I be a thief or a saint. What am I to do with all this undeserved grace?

Let me give over all my effort in one pursuit: to become closer to you. Let me draw near to you with all my worldly works, Lord.

(Letter #1410)
