The Cross Is The "Ladder" Of Monks


The grace of God and the virtues which flow therefrom are a way and a ladder that leads to heaven; but vices and sins are a ladder and a way that leads to the depths of hell. Vices and sins are a venomous and a mortal poison, but virtues and good works are a salutory medicine. One grace leads to another; and one vice leads to another. Grace asks not to be praised, and vice cannot endure to be despised. The mind reposes tranquility in humility, of whom patience is daughter. Holy purity of heart sees God, and true devotion enjoys him.
