More fervant, more fruitful

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love. 
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.  In this way,
love is made complete among us ...There is no fear in love. 
But perfect love drives out fear ... I John 4: 16, 17a, 18a
Valerie Grays receives Holy Communion from Fr William Norvel, Sept 2011. (Marvin Joseph - The Post)

"Because each of our Communions ought not only to preserve but to increase charity in us, each Communion should be substantially more fervent and more fruitful than the preceding one; for each one, by increasing the love of God in us, ought to dispose us to receive our Lord on the following day with not only an equal but a superior fervor of will." 

Fr. Reginald Garrigou-LaGrange, O.P.
