Love is ever reverent; true love cannot exist without reverence; and the deeper the love, the more intense the reverence. Love is likewise bold; and the more we love God, the bolder we should become with Him, and the greater favors may we ask from Him. Speak to Almighty God earnestly, boldly telling Him that you have paid Him more than you owe Him for yourself, that there is that which is indefinitely over and above the debt you owed-----will He give it to those who are in such dreadful need? Yes! We may well speak confidently to God, since in offering the Precious Blood, we have more than paid the debt of our own sins; in one sense we indeed owe God nothing-----Jesus has more than paid for us-----we offer Jesus in satisfaction for our sins; we offer the Eternal Father Infinite satisfaction for finite sin. Ah, then, let us plead with the good God Who so loves the bold prayer, Who so loves the charity that prompts it. Ah, what will not charity do? What can it not do? Let us fill our hearts full of that dear, dear virtue.
