“Prepare yourself at once to give a real assent to the truth that first place in your life is not enough for the God who made you! He has not loved you with an everlasting love just to have the first place in your life, ahead of many other loves and countless other interests. He does not now exert His omnipotence, not every day, from dawn to dusk and then through the night, ply His Providence just to have first place in your life. He would never shatter nothingness with His creative cry of fiat just for first place. He merits and He wants the only place!
That does not mean that you are not to have other loves and other interests—far from it. Once you have given God the only place in your life, your loves are multiplied and your interests become innumerable; for you live fully, and the almost limitless capacity of your heart for loves and your mind for interests, in God and under God and for God, will be receiving its fill.”
