Spirituality: Binding oneself to God

To bind oneself more to God our Lord and to show oneself generous toward Him is to consecrate oneself completely and irrevocably to His service....

The more one binds himself to God our Lord and shows himself more generous toward His Divine Majesty, the more he will find God more generous toward himself and the more disposed will he be to receive graces and spiritual gifts which are greater each day.

(Ganss, trans., The Constitutions of the Society of Jesus, p. 163)
