The Way to Interior Recollection

"You should not be philosophizing so much about yourself.  Walk in good faith, follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ, continue your prayer, and always base yourself on the Divine Mysteries of the holy Life and Passion of Jesus, our Life.  This is the secure way from which is born interior recollection, the gift of remaining in internal solitude in the Divine Presence, without danger of deceit.  Never should you leave sight of your Divine Exemplar, Jesus , in his sufferings.  'I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through me,' our Divine Master himself told us." (From a letter of St. Paul of the Cross to Thomas Fossi, May 30, 1752)
