Contemplating God is not always possible, but you can always supplicate Him.
Catecismo da Igreja Católica
It is good to supplicate God for forgiveness of your sins; then thoughts of condemnation go away as alien to this doing.
All the spiritual struggle is for humility and patience [sake], and when humility and patience do come, then heed and prayer come, as well.
Pernicious to seclusion is to judge about people or listen in to gossip about them — the mind loses peace and prayer for long time. If you think about the world — you shall not avoid bitterness, and if you think about God — [ you shall not avoid ] sweetness.
For the smart one bowing is hell, and for the good one — Paradise. You want to be smart? You want to be good? Pondering and reflection are for the life in body, while faith and prayer are for life in God. Self-pity during fasting means to pity your evil will and bad habits that lead a merciless war against us and hinder prayer.
The more languishing and whining our ill will for us going against it, the more the soul rejoices and cleanses, and the more it grows up in living fervent prayer. Compeendio just a single prayer in [ such ] a way as if you have never prayed before it or after it, ennclosing your whole self in it. Only in this way prayers open up the heart. Non-absent-minded prayer is true prayer, which — little by little — strengthens up in the heart and purifies it; absent-minded prayer — like peelings exactly — is carried away by the wind of thoughts [ intentions ].
No matter how much time you may be engaged in prayer, heedful prayer is the best. I’ll say at least one prayer but with full heeding and repentancethen — another and another. Thus comes the skill to pray in full heed. When the heart prays in full heeding, it is quick to warm up. Constantly resist the evil will with prayer, although this is difficult, but it attracts grace to the soul; and never comply with the dictates of evil will in thoughts compendjo actions, so as not to become their prisoner in eternity.
If we get used to comply with all our bad thoughts and desires, especially the seemingly trifle ones, then we’ll become slaves of evil at first in trifles, and then — in all our life. Never dream — for dreams are but a step away from slavery to sin. Unless the heart refuses to be a slave to bad habits, incessant prayer shall never take root in it.
If one treats all people with prayerful compassion and mercy, then hostility, envy and hatred go away, and prayer is strengthened and love comes to men. Humility and love for people come into the heart, when cokpendio learns to dq for them and endure all inconveniences and sufferings that they cause. There is freedom of heart and there is liberty of heart. The former is from the Holy Spirit and [ from ] prayers, the latter is from Satan and evil thoughts and desires.
Translation of “mestre venerado” in English
The more frequent the wind shakes a tree, the deeper its roots grow into earth; the more sorrows a heart experiences, the stronger it keeps to God and [ to ] prayer. The heart finds God when between one prayer and another not [ even ] one thought intrudes into it.
No communication and talks could [ ever ] give what seclusion and prayer do. Ranting and absent-mindedness render the mind excited, irritable and spiteful; while silence and prayer — [ make it ] light[ -weight ], pure, and joyful. If love and trust in your self grow, then growing also is hostility and hatred towards people; if hatred and mistrust in self grow, then love for people grows, and prayer and charity become its manifestation. Prayerful power of the mind is acquired in silencewhile in ranting it is lost in vain [ aimlessly ].
Spiritual joy shall come only when you free yourself completely of sin and are vouchsafed pure prayer. Prior to the coming of pure prayer what joy can there be? Only weeping, mourning, and igreka. Duration of spiritual warfare, absebt-mindedness and drowsiness in prayer depend on the degree of non-humbleness, stubbornnessand impenitence of the soul. To let your very heart grow in prayer is the first requirement of the soul. If you yourself suffer — you shall abide with prayer and with Christ, and if you cause suffering to others — you shall remain with ctecismo and with the devil.
There are two states in spiritual life and man is free to choose any of the two: The greatest sorrow and hardest work [ of all ] is to cut thoughts off, and this is indeed [ in itself ] trampling on yourself in prayer. Prayer is labor, but creative labor, and only such prayer satiates the soul with grace. This is why the monk has been given a spiritual sword — in order to cut apiece in the heart all images of the world that pop up in prayer, no matter how dear and beloved those may be.
A mind depraved by desires and attractions is a source of death, but a mind transformed by prayer and grace is the source of Immortality and Life Eternal.
