QUOTATION: Motives for Prayer

St. Alphonsus Liguori
We should not go to prayer in order to taste the sweetness of divine love; whoever prays from such a motive will lose his time, or at least derive little advantage from it. A person should begin to pray solely to please God, that is, solely to learn what the will of God is in his regard, and to beg of him the help to put it in practice.

--St. Alphonsus Liguori, The Holy Eucharist
