The Soul and God

“We have been so accustomed to follow every whim and fancy, to gratify ourselves in all that we consider not positively sinful (our efforts to live a Christian life have consisted rather in the effort to avoid what was wrong, than to do what was right) that the soul no longer understands itself as a soul. To accustom it to God it is necessary to proceed slowly, with caution and patience.”
~St. Teresa of Avila

“God is hidden in us, and from us. To find Him we must go to hide ourselves where He is hidden.”
~St. John of the Cross
