To Prevent Distractions
The practice of the Prayer of Recollection is of no slight advantage to a distracted soul. And in fact, to contemplate with the eye of faith our God present within us - that is to say, to see within us a majesty exceeding all greatness, a beauty surpassing all loveliness and glory, a goodness that has no limits, the true essence of Heaven will prove a very efficacious means to prevent ourselves from being distracted by the wretched exterior things of this world.
