Gratuitous Friendship

Little Sister MagdeleineWe must go towards people with a “gratuitous” or “free” friendship, which knows how to love without getting anything in return, without calculating the results. It is disconcerting to me to always be asked, “What are the results of your apostolate? What influence do you have on those around you?” … Well, God counts them and God sees them.
Little Sister Magdeleine (1898–1989)
