How God Will Sanctify A Soul

[There is no better place to pray than before the Most Blessed Sacrament.]

When God would sanctify a soul, he separates it from the world by trials and afflictions, or simply by His grace, inspiring in it an abhorrence of the world and a love for silence, solitude and prayer.

The greatest of God’s gifts to the soul is the gift of prayer, whereby it is as forced into a life of solitude and recollection, and made to spiritualize itself by way of self-mortification. And when the souls becomes laggard in its task, God sends it infirmities, illness, inner suffering which purge it and free it from self, just as an electric storm purifies the air.”

(St. Peter Julian Eymard from Holy Communion)
