True love hurts. It always has to hurt. It must be painful to love someone, painful to leave them, you might have to die for them. When people marry they have to give up everything to love each other. The mother who gives birth to her child suffers much. It is the same for us in the religious life. To belong fully to God we have to give up everything . Only then can we truly love. The word “love” is so misunderstood and so misused.
How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word.
