-St. John of the Cross
Is my spirit “quiet” and “reposed?” To what extent, then, am I truly detached from the influences of the world and the flesh?
Irritations pg 217
Give me, good Lord, a humble, lowly, quiet, peaceable, patient, charitable, kind, filial, and tender mind, every shade, in fact, of charity, with all my words, and all my works, and all my thoughts, to have a taste of Thy holy blessed Spirit.
– St Thomas More
