Carmelite Quote

To keep you from thinking that little is gained through a perfect recitation of vocal prayer, I tell you that it is very possible that while you are reciting the Our Father or some other vocal prayer, the Lord may raise you to perfect contemplation. by these means His Majesty shows that He listens to the one who speaks to Him. And it is His grandeur that speaks to the soul, suspending one's intellect, binding one's imagination,and , as they say, taking the words form one's mouth; for even though the soul may want to do so, it cannot speak unless with great difficulty.
Way of Perfection 25:1
