'Prayer is the speaking of the mind to God. What structure does the mind need so that, not looking back, nor hither and thither, it may rise to the Lord and converse with Him, with no intermediary?'

'In all your affairs lean solely on God's Providence, by means of which alone your plans can succeed. Meanwhile, on your part work on in quiet co-operation with Him, and then rest satisfied that if you have trusted entirely to Him you will always obtain such a measure of success as is most profitable for you, whether it seems so or not to your own individual judgment.'

'Only a soul which has been delivered from the passions can without error contemplate created beings. Because its virtue is perfect, and because its knowledge is spiritual and free from materiality, such a soul is called 'Jerusalem'. This state is attained through exclusion not only of the passions but also of sensible images.'

St. Maximos the Confessor

St. Maximos the Confessor


Our Lady in the Mystical City of God teaches about how we should exclude the passions and sensible images.  Materiality is a hindrance in the spiritual life.  We should keep our eyes down and our thoughts on God, so that our hearts will be all for Him.

“I know one must be most pure to appear before the God of all holiness, but I know too that the Lord is infinitely just; and it is this justice, which terrifies so many souls, that is the basis of my joy and trust. To be just means not only to exercise severity in punishing the guilty, but also to recognize right intentions and reward virtue. I hope as much from the good God's justice as from His mercy.”
 
St. Therese of Lisieux, "Letter to Father Roulland (9 May 1897)", The Collected Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux, (London: Sheed, 1949) 291.

'It is said that those who eat the herb called Angelica always have a pure, sweet breath; and those who have chastity, which is the angelic virtue, within their hearts, speak modestly, courteously, and purely. As for unbecoming and foolish things, the Apostle does not wish us even to name them, assuring us that nothing is so ruinous to good morals as evil communications.'
