The most holy, the most general and most necessary practice in the spiritual life is the practice of the presence of God, whereby the soul finds her joy and contentment in His companionship, talking humbly and lovingly to Him always and at all times, without rule or system, but particularly in moments of temptation, of trouble, or spiritual dryness, or revulsion, and especially when we fall into unfaithfulness and sin.

– Br. Lawrence of the Resurrection
