(c. 1610-1691 AD). A lay brother in a Carmelite monastery.
"We should, once and for all, heartily put our whole trust in God and make a total surrender of ourselves, secure that He will not deceive us."
"One way to re-collect the mind easily in the time of prayer and preserve it more in tranquillity, is not to let it wander too far at other times."
"It is a great delusion to think our times of prayer ought to differ from other times. We are as strictly obliged to cleave to God by action in the time of action as by prayer in the season of prayer."
"We only deceive ourselves by seeking or loving God for any favors which He has or may grant us. Such favors, no matter how great, can never bring us as near to God as can one simple act of faith. Let us seek Him often by faith."
"Pay little attention to the beautiful words and subtle discourse of the wise of the earth. Woe to those who look to human knowledge to satisfy their curiosity. It is the Creator who teaches the truth and instructs the heart of the humble."
"In continuing the practice of conversing with God throughout each day, and quickly seeking His forgiveness when I fell or strayed, His presence has become as easy and natural to me now as it once was difficult to attain."
