'Consider then diligently in thy meditations the benefits which thy Creator hath bestowed upon thee, wherewith without any merits of thine He hath exalted thee; and call to mind the innumerable evil thoughts words and deeds, wherewith thine unrighteousness unworthily recompensed His kindness, and conceiving great sorrow in thyself, cry aloud, What have I done? I have vexed God, I have provoked my Creator to wrath, I have recompensed His innumerable benefits with innumerable sins. What have I done? As thou sayest this, smite upon thy breast, utter thy voice in groaning, pour forth thy tears. For if thou weepest not now, when wilt thou weep?'

'It seems to me that the Divine and Sovereign Goodness wishes to give you in His kingdom a most plentiful and munificent reward for the service you render Him; since for the good deeds for which others receive at least a little consolation in return, even as regards man, you have known only pain and most extraordinary contradictions.'

'Prudence shows us what is most pleasing to God, and most useful to the salvation of our soul. We must always choose the most perfect. Two good works present themselves to be done, one in favour of a person we love, the other in favour of a person who has done us some harm; well, we must give preference to the latter.'

'If you are submerged in the waters of infidelity and inconstancy, plunge yourself into the fathomless deep of the Sacred Heart. Its stability and steadfastness will teach you to be faithful to Him -- our true and faithful Friend --and constant in His service, as He has ever been in His love for us.'

'If you distract your intellect from its love for God and concentrate it, not on God, but on some sensible object, you thereby show that you value the body more than the soul and the things made by God more than God Himself.'

'For as those who are causes of scandals inherit the Woe, so those who incite to virtue inherit blessing. And never, brethren, let us fall away from the good state and the praiseworthy way of life, nor let us leave off loving God; for it is written, You shall love the Lord your God with your whole heart and your whole soul and your whole strength and your whole mind.'

St. Theodore the Studite
