Sunday Thoughts

Catherine of Sienna listed three stages in the journey toward mystical union with God.
-- Slavish fear (motivated by fear of punishment)
-- Mercenary love (motivated by reward)
-- Filial love or love of a very dear friend

From The Fulfillment of All Desire: A Guidebook for the Journey to God Based on the Wisdom of the Saints by Ralph Martin
