"If they are children of God, let them understand that they are moved by God so that they may do what is to be done. And when they have done it, let them give thanks to him by whom they do it.
"Hence, when they act in the proper way, that is, with love and the delight of justice, they should rejoice that they have received the sweetness the Lord has given them. When they do not act in the proper way, let them pray that they may receive what they do not yet have."
