'Then I read the Gospel, and saw there that a great means of reaching perfection was the selling of one's goods, the sharing of them with the poor, the giving up of all care for this life, and the refusal to allow the soul to be turned by any sympathy towards things of earth.'

'As you are of good will, I am sure that if you are faithful, the Sacred Heart will help you to make this sacrifice which will draw upon you many blessings. But you must not think this can be done all at once and without a struggle; there must be many a battle. To gain the victory you must persevere.'

'This heavenly salutation draws down upon us the blessings of Jesus and Mary in abundance, for it is an infallible truth that Jesus and Mary reward in a marvellous way those who glorify them. "I love those who love me. I enrich them and fill their treasures" (Prov. 8:17, 21). That is what Jesus and Mary say to us. "Those who sow blessings will also reap blessings" (2 Cor. 9:6).'

'Blessed is the intellect that transcends all sensible objects and ceaselessly delights in divine beauty.'

St. Maximos the Confessor
"The intellect is not the soul, but a gift of God that saves the soul: and the intellect that conforms to God goes on ahead of the soul and counsels it to despise what is transitory, material and corruptible, and to turn all its desire towards eternal, incorruptible and immaterial blessings. And the intellect teaches man while still in the body to perceive and contemplate divine and heavenly realities, and everything else as well, through itself Thus the intellect that enjoys the love of God is the benefactor and Savior of the human soul. "
"Intelligence is the servant of the intellect: whatever the intellect wills, the intelligence conceives and expresses.
The intellect sees all things, including the celestial. Nothing darkens it except sin.
To the pure intellect nothing is incomprehensible, just as for the intelligence nothing is beyond expression.
By virtue of his body man is mortal: and by virtue of his intellect and intelligence he is immortal.
Through silence you come to understanding: having understood, you give expression.
It is in silence that the intellect gives birth to the intelligence; and the thankful intelligence offered to God is man's salvation."
Saint Anthony the Great

'So let us remain, at first, in the presence of God in pure faith, with a deep sense of our nothingness, our sins and miseries; afterwards let us leave free to the soul the attractions of the Holy Ghost.'

'I am ready, O Lord, to suffer the death which they threaten, and all the tortures which they can inflict, to endure even the fires of hell, rather than swerve in the least degree from Thy love.

And ye, foul demons, go on, employ all your might and rage; behold me ready to satisfy your hatred, to endure all you threaten me with, to the Day of Judgment, for the love of my Lord Jesus Christ.'
