Quote of the day: 6 February

There are three signs of inner recollection:

  1. a lack of satisfaction in passing things;
  2. a liking for solitude and silence, and an attentiveness to all that is more perfect; and,
  3. the considerations, meditations, and acts that formerly helped the soul now hinder it, and it brings to prayer no other support than faith, hope, and love.
Saint John of the Cross

Sayings of Light and Love, 119
