Love of Complacency

Additional Links

The first alteration of the appetite by an appetible thing which pleases, affects, and inclines the appetite towards it. This love is followed by desire, i.e.,a movement of the appetite towards the appetible thing, and by joy, i.e.,the ultimate rest in possession of the appetiblll thing. Love of complacency is sometimes used to signify the love with which the blessed in heaven love God for His own sake because of His infinite goodness, in contradistinction to love of concupiscence, whereby God is loved as the source of the creature's happiness.
