I come now to the soul or the life-giving principle of all the virtues.
I refer to charity, the virtue alone capable of leading a man to real holiness.
In mortifying the flesh, in overcoming sin and in attaining to grace, nothing avails like charity.
Would you reach the highest rung of the ladder of perfection?
Nothing could possibly be devised to help you more than charity.

Chapter 18 No Gift of God is More Excellent Than Love.
"There is no gift of God more excellent than [love]. [Love] alone distinguishes the sons of the eternal kingdom from the sons of eternal perdition. Other gifts, too, are given by the Holy Spirit; but without love they profit nothing. Unless, therefore, the Holy Spirit is so far imparted to each, as to make him one who loves God and his neighbor, he is not removed from the left hand to the right. Nor is the Spirit specially called the Gift, unless on account of love."
 
Saint Augustine On the Trinity Book 15 Chapter 18

'If you understand what is said in a mystical sense by St Paul, that "we wrestle . . . against spiritual wickedness" (Eph. 6:12), you will also understand the parable of the Lord, which He spoke "to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to lose heart" (Luke 18:1).'

Counsel of Trent Session 6 Chapter 6
The manner of Preparation.
Now they (adults) are disposed unto ... justice, when, excited and assisted by divine grace, conceiving faith by hearing, they are freely moved towards God, believing those things to be true which God has revealed and promised, and this especially, that God justifies the impious by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus; and when, understanding themselves to be sinners, they, by turning themselves, from the fear of divine justice whereby they are profitably agitated, to consider the mercy of God, are raised unto hope, confiding that God will be propitious to them for Christ's sake; and they begin to love Him as the fountain of all justice; and are therefore moved against sins by a certain hatred and detestation, to wit, by that penitence which must be performed before baptism: lastly, when they purpose to receive baptism, to begin a new life, and to keep the commandments of God. Concerning this disposition it is written; He that cometh to God, must believe that He is, and is a rewarder to them that seek Him; and, Be of good faith, son, thy sins are forgiven thee; and, The fear of the Lord driveth out sin; and, Do penance, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost; and, Going, therefore, teach ye all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; finally, Prepare your hearts unto the Lord.

"Doctrine without assisting grace, although it comes in through the ears, never descends to the heart; it makes a great noise outside, but inside it profits nothing. However, the word of God brought in through the ears ultimately reaches to the heart when the grace of God touches the mind interiorly so that it might be understood. For just as God illuminates people with the flame of His divine love so that they might understand in a life-giving manner, so also he deserts the frigid and lazy so that they persist without awareness." Saint Isidore of Seville Sententiae Book 3 Chapter 10 verse 1&2
