The Lord loves everyone, but He particularly loves those who seek Him. To his chosen ones the Lord gives such great grace that for His love they forsake the whole earth, the whole world, and their souls burn with the desire that everyone might be saved and see the glory of the Lord.
He gave us everything He had: his soul, his flesh, his blood. Everything for us.
