To Advance in the Love of God

How comes it that we are not so advanced in the love of God as St. Augustine, St. Francis, etc.?  …it is because God has not given us the grace. But why has he not given us the grace? Because we did not correspond to his inspirations as we should have done. —St. Francis de Sales, Treatise on the Love of God

—I found this quote in the book Hungry Souls: Supernatural Visits, Messages, and Warnings from Purgatory by Gerard J.M van den Aardweg, Ch. 7: The Fire of Purgatory According to Catherine of Genoa
