Isn’t it wonderful and comforting that the Lord works with our intentions and not with out accomplishments!

No love can ever become pure in human beings, nor in angels. So neither can this love [conjugial love, or the love of marriage). But because the Lord primarily regards the intention that is in the will, therefore to the extent that a person has the intention and perseveres in it, to that extent he is introduced into the purity and holiness of this love, and gradually makes progress in it.  (Conjugial Love, paragraph 71.2; Rogers)
