'If a man has some spiritual gift and feels compassion for those who do not have it, he preserves the gift because of his compassion. But a boastful man will lose it through succumbing to the temptations of boastfulness.'

'Those who pay a moderate attention to the mortification of their bodies, and direct their main intention to mortify the will and understanding, even in matters of the slightest moment, are more to be esteemed than they who give themselves up exclusively to corporal penances and macerations.'

' It is most unbecoming for Christians to sit down at table to eat before the food has been blessed by someone in the group. As the Gospel tells us, Jesus Christ, who is our model in all things, was in the habit of blessing what had been prepared for him and for those who accompanied him. To act otherwise would be to act like animals. [Mt 14:19; 15:36; Mk 6:41]'

'Again in Psalm 23 "the rod" is said to signify God's judgment and "the staff" His providence. So he who has received spiritual knowledge of these things is able to say, "Thy rod and Thy staff have comforted me."'

'Now although man is created for the possession of happiness, yet, having deviated from his true end, his nature has become deformed and is entirely repugnant to true beatitude. And on this account we are forced to submit to God this depraved nature of ours which fills our understanding with so many occupations, and causes us to deviate from the true path, in order that he may entirely consume it until nothing remains there but himself; otherwise the soul could never attain stability nor repose, for she was created for no other end.'
