Principles and Practices - June 10

Listen and Follow

Prayer calms the soul as nothing else can, more especially if during the day you help the grace of God by trying to keep your heart united with God who is dwelling within your very soul. At all costs you must conquer and keep your peace of mind (after all in a few years what will it matter to any of us whether we have gained success. or not ?), otherwise good-bye to holiness.
