Our Heart Needs Work

Gary Thomas, in his book Thirsting for God (eBook, loc 2879), quotes Brother Giles.

“If a man were to live a thousand years and not have anything to do outside himself, he would have enough to do within, in his own heart, nor would he be able to bring the work to perfect completion – he would have so much to do only within, in his own heart!”

Cited in Brother Ugolino di Santa Maria, The Little Flowers of Saint Francis, trans. By Raphael Brown (New York: Image Books, 1958), p. 283
