As stated in the Catechism of Pope St. Pius X...

"We should love God because He is the Supreme Good, infinitely good and perfect; and also, because He commands us to do so, and because of the many benefits we receive from Him."

And...

"We are to love God above all things else, with our whole heart, with our whole mind, with our whole soul, and with all our strength."

"[Jesus] said to him, 'You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.'" (Mt. 22:37)

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength." (Our Lord Jesus Christ, Mk. 12:30)

"He said in reply, 'You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.'" (Lk. 10:27)

"The reason for loving God is God Himself; the measure of loving God is to love Him beyond measure." (St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Doctor of the Church)

"If God were to bestow on anyone no other talents besides the grace of loving him, this alone suffices and is every spiritual treasure." (St. Bonaventure, Doctor of the Church)

"To love God you need three hearts in one: a heart of fire for Him, a heart of flesh for your neighbor, and a heart of bronze for yourself." (St. Benedict Joseph Labre)

"The sign that you love God is this: that you love your fellow. And if you hate your fellow, your hatred is towards God." (St. Ephraem the Syrian, Doctor of the Church)

"God cannot be loved from the heart and above all things else, unless we prefer His honor and glory to all things created." (Catechism of the Council of Trent)

"In the long run there will be but two kinds of men: those who love God and those who love something else." (St. Augustine, Doctor of the Church)

"If you really love God, you will not be content with avoiding big sins. You will regard as hateful anything which could be even a little displeasing to him." (St. John Vianney)
