Lord Jesus, say I, what can have brought the sorrows of death into the soul of life except love, which, exciting commiseration, drew thereby our miseries into thy sovereign heart?
Now a devout soul, seeing this abyss of heaviness and distress in this divine lover, how can she be without a holily loving sorrow? But considering, on the other hand, that all the afflictions of her well-beloved proceed from no imperfection or want of strength, but from the greatness of his dearest love, she cannot but melt away with a holy sorrowful love.
So that she cries: "I am black" with sorrow by compassion, but beautiful with love by complacency; the anguish of my well-beloved "has changed my colour": for how could a faithful lover behold such torments in him whom she loves more than her life, without swooning away and becoming all wan and wasted with grief.
Francis of Assisi - Works of the Seraphic Father 'These are the weapons by which the chaste soul is overcome: looks, speeches, touches, embraces. He who retires into the desert avoids three combats: seeing, hearing, and detraction. Fly from the world, if thou wilt be pure. If thou art pure, the world does not delight thee. Gertrude the Great - The Exercises 'Thou art the glorious mirror of the Most Holy Trinity, into which the eyes of the clean of heart may gaze, here only darkly, but there face to face.
Come, sprinkle me over with Thy purity, and I shall be cleansed. Touch the secret places of my heart with Thy cleanness, and I shall be made whiter than snow.
Let Thy charity, I beseech Thee, prevail by its greatness, and let Thy merits infold me with their abundant holiness, lest I be held back from Thy beauty by my unlikeness.
Tu es praeclarum sanctae Trinitatis speculum, quod ibi facie ad faciem, hic autem in aenigmate solum, licet intueri per mundi cordis oculum. Tange tua munditia cordis mei intima, et super nivem dealbabor.
Praevaleat quaeso tuae charitatis magnitudo, et involvat me meritorum tuorum copiosa sanctitudo, ne impediat me a te meae venustatis dissimilitudo. Mechtilde - Preces Gertrudianae 'This prayer was revealed to St.
Gertrude during an unusually abundant influx of grace and light. Our Lord said to her: Whoever repeats this prayer shall receive the grace to know me more intimately, and shall receive in his soul the splendour of my Divinity, even as he who holds up to the sun a mirror of pure gold collects therein the dazzling efflugence of its rays.
Ignatius of Loyola - The Autobiography of 'In the meantime the divine mercy was at work substituting for these thoughts others suggested by his recent readings.
While perusing the life of Our Lord and the saints, he began to reflect, saying to himself: "What if I should do what Saint Francis did? He seemed to feel a certain readiness for doing them, with no other reason except this thought: "Saint Dominic did this; I, too, will do it.
This succession of thoughts occupied him for a long while, those about God alternating with those about the world. But in these thoughts there was this difference.
When he thought of worldly things it gave him great pleasure, but afterward he found himself dry and sad. But when he thought of journeying to Jerusalem, and of living only on herbs, and practising austerities, he found pleasure not only while thinking of them, but also when he had ceased.
This difference he did not notice or value, until one day the eyes of his soul were opened and he began to inquire the reason of the difference.
Ignatius of Loyola - Letters and Instructions 'It is to be noted, that if one be of a choleric temperament, and should converse with another who is choleric, if they be not in everything of the same mind, there is a great danger of their conversation becoming heated.
Consequently, one who knows that he is of a choleric temperament must go strongly armed, even in regard to the smallest details about to be discussed with others, with examen and other precautions, to endure and not to lose his temper with the other party, especially if he knows that other to be weak in self-control.
In conversing with phlegmatic or melancholic persons there is less danger of discord through heated words. Ignatius of Loyola - The Spiritual Exercises 'It is likewise to be remarked that, as, in the time of consolation, it is easy and not irksome to be in contemplation the full hour, so it is very hard in the time of desolation to fill it out.
For this reason, the person who is exercising himself, in order to act against the desolation and conquer the temptations, ought always to stay somewhat more than the full hour; so as to accustom himself not only to resist the adversary, but even to overthrow him. Ignatius of Loyola - A Thought from for Each Day of the Year 'Adversity is such, that it is really advantageous to the just man, for it causes him a profitable loss; just as a shower of precious stones might break the leaves of the vine, but would replace them by the most beautiful treasures.
