Saint Paul of the Cross: Becoming Saints



"Let them never neglect mental prayer.  Make it every day, even if you are there like a stone.  Internal and external mortifications are the wings which carry us to God in holy prayer by raising our spirit to him.  Read good books, be a friend of silence, do not mind others' business, . . . , and often raise your heart with holy acts of love toward God.  Fortunate those souls who do this, for they will become saints.  I know poor people in the world who do great things for God.  Let us never leave off prayer, no matter if we are afflicted, poor, and abandoned.  Fortunate those who do this, for they know the truth and flee from the lies of which the world is full." (From a letter of St. Paul of the Cross)
