God. Sweeten your thoughts with words of consolation and hope.
Warm your words with the warmth of your love towards your Bridegroom and remember His Passion, which he underwent for you, so that you would remain firm, devoted and humble.
Give your whole self completely over to the protecting veil of the Panagia.
Never ever give importance to anything earthly and fleeting. Take care of your spiritual union with God instead.
- Do not neglect evening prayer. Pray with eagerness like those who are going to a feast. They are awake and feel joy alone. Thus, since you are going to speak with your Bridegroom, do not listen when the Tempter tells you various things in order to hinder you, because you know there is someone who cares for you.
