From an online retreat

"God is perfectly one, the perfect unity. We have love, but God is love. His love is not an activity. It is his whole self. If we but grasp some idea of this, we understand that God could not possibly give 100% of his love to his Son and then 70% to us. He would not be God if he could do that. When we read the dialogues of St. Catherine of Siena, we get the impression that God has nothing to do but simply occupy himself with Catherine. And that is right. The undivided attention of God is with her and with each of us."

I used to know this.
