It will decide everything!

The 27th successor to St. Ignatius as Father General of the Society of Jesus, Fr. Pedro Arrupe (1907-1991), left a rather similar spiritual testament in more contemporary language:

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.  It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything."
