Excerpt from The Practice of Christian Perfection: From Rodriguez, and Other Catholic Authors
The affair of christian perfection is not to be carried on by constraint; it is the heart that must undertake it: 'if thou wilt be perfect, - come, follow me, ' said our Lord to the man who had kept the commandments from his youth, and asked what was yet wanting to him;2 teaching us, by this answer, that an ardent desire of perfection is necessary to its attainment.
