Jean Pierre de Caussade on Purity of Heart

By Peter Darcy | On Apr 7, 2015 | No Comments | In Faith and Virtue Quotes

If we wish to enjoy an abundance of blessings, we have only one thing to do: purify our hearts by emptying them of all desire for created things and surrender ourselves wholly to God. By doing this we shall get all we want. Let others, Lord, ask you for all sorts of gifts. But I, my Lord, ask for one thing only: please give me a pure heart.

~Jean Pierre de Caussade S.J. (1675-1751)
