Bear in Mind this Reproach

Reginald Garrigou-LagrangeSome Christians, who have a quietist tendency, are inclined to think that a person can rapidly reach perfection by the assiduous reading of the great mystics, without concerning himself enough with practising the virtues which these books recommend, and without remembering sufficiently that true contemplation should be completely penetrated by supernatural charity and forgetfulness of self.
Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange OP (1877–1964)
