(An excerpt from Adoration, “A Simple Love,” pg. 132)

Mary let herself need Him by naked desperation. She received Him and let Him be her Savior. She let Him wrench her heart with the shock of sin. She let His love burn into her heart until she loved Him…“because He first loved her.”

Let! The magic word, the simple key is let…a word of nonresistance, open surrender.

In all the world and universe, of all who have lived and ever will live, only One Loves, only One. Mary loved Him with a Love He gave her…Himself!

The first commandment ­– Love God with all your being, body (all your strength), soul (all your mind), and spirit (all your heart). The amazing, exciting secret of the Gospel is that God Himself fulfills that commandment to all who will let Him!
