No, I do believe it is everyone, I think he is simply saying it non-exclusively.

It's great to meditate on a quote and work at understanding it! Cheesy

I think St. Thalassios' quote is one of those for a good deal of thought.

It makes me think of the difference in thought itself, when thought itself is virtuous, or not. And something I heard of once called the 'principle of the integral good', which is "good is from an integral cause, evil from any defect whatsoever."

I think to truly understand this quote you have to experience it in the end. But it's helpful guidance too.

God help us on the journey!

When tempted, invoke your Angel. he is more eager to help you than you are to be helped! Ignore the devil and do not be afraid of him: He trembles and flees at the sight of your Guardian Angel.

Just as a man cannot live in the flesh unless he is born in the flesh, even so a man cannot have the spiritual life of grace unless he is born again spiritually. This regeneration is effected by Baptism: "Unless a man is born again of water and the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God" [Jn 3:5].

Whenever I am asked if I am born again, I am always at a loss how to answer;
well, not anymore; now, thanks to St. Thomas Aquinas, I know just how to answer that frequently asked question and it will be something like this:
Yes and No! I am not a born again Christian, not the one you have in mind.
I am Catholic. Born again of water and the Holy Spirit at the time I was baptized and confirmed!
How is that for an answer? Grin

Pretty good odhiambo! Cheesy

The more I think of spiritual virtue, infused virtue, the more I think of how the Christian way of life is so different fundamentally, outside and in, than the worldly way of life.

All the ways of acting, the entertainment, the daily life, everything is different.

It frightens me to see how far I have to go and little I know.

God is merciful; we can but hope. crucifix
I have realised that the more we try the more we indeed grow in the faith. Once you start losing interest in some of the things you once thought were vital to a good life, you know you are inching forwards. Smiley
