QUOTATION: Spiritual Reading in Prayer

St. John Eudes
The fourth method of prayer is to read good books, reading them, however, not in haste, but taking your time, and applying your mind to what you are reading, stopping to consider and turning over in your thoughts the truths that strike you most forcefully, in order to impress them on your mind so as to derive specific acts of virtue and profitable resolutions.

--St. John Eudes, The Four Foundations of Sanctity
