The Spirit’s Fruit Is Love

“When the evening of this
life comes,” says John of the Cross, “you will be judged on love.” The
only question asked about the soul’s use of its house and the gifts that
were made to it will be: “Have you loved well?” All else will be
resumed in this—all thoughts, beliefs, desires, struggles and
achievements, all complex activities, for faith is nothing unless it is
the obscure vision of a loved Reality, and hope is nothing unless it is
the confidence of perfect love.

So, too, with all the
persons, events, opportunities, conflicts and choices proposed for the
soul’s purification and growth. Was everything that was done, done for
love’s sake? Were all the doors opened that the warmth of love might
fill the whole house; the windows cleaned that they might more and more
radiate from within its mysterious divine light?
