Fr. Matthias shows us that loving God is not feel good about Him, but seeking to unite our wills with His. The opposite of this, love of oneself and contempt for God, is sin. Can we ever conquer this? Father explains how, emphasizing that, though we remain weak and wounded, it is never necessary to offend God. We will still fall into faults or involuntary venial sins which don't offend God, but serve to remind us of God's mercy and our weakness. Finally, he shares a prayer from St. Therese of the Child Jesus for this intention. Ave Maria!
