Quote of the day, 18 September: Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection

We must perform all our actions carefully and deliberately, not impulsively or hurriedly, for such would characterize a distracted mind. We must work gently and lovingly with God, asking him to accept our work, and by this continual attention to God we will crush the head of the devil and force the weapons from his hands.

Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection, O.C.D.

Spiritual Maxims, 8
