"Since prayer opens our minds to the brightness of divine light and our will to the warmth of heavenly love, nothing so purges our mind of ignorance and our will of evil desires; its sacred waters refreshes the soul, wash away our imperfections, revive the flowers of our good desires and quench the thirst of our hearts' passions".

 

- St Francis de Sales, from the Introduction to the Devout Life, which is one of my favourite spiritual writings.

 

Today, 24 January, is the feast of the great bishop of Geneva, and doctor of the Church, St Francis de Sales.
