“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me has not been ineffective. Indeed, I have toiled harder than all of them; not I, however, but the grace of God that is with me.” (1 COR 15: 10)
This is Our Lord’s love, which created us and made us who we are. We can cooperate with God’s grace, like St. Paul, who has “toiled harder than all of them, but [it is by] the grace of God that is with me.” St. Therese the Great used to say: Therese alone can do nothing, but Therese with Jesus can do everything. The closer we come to Jesus, the closer we are to our true identity.
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
