Isaac of Nineveh for Lent XIV

Read often and insatiably the books of the teachers of the Church on divine providence, for they lead the mind to discern the order in God's creatures and His actions, give it strength, and by their subtleness they prepare it to acquire luminous perceptions and guide it in purity toward the understanding of God's creatures. Read also the Gospels, which God ordained for knowledge for the whole world, that you may find provisions for your journey in the might of God's providence for every generation, and that your mind may plunge deeply into wonder at Him.

Homily 4 (p. 146).

    I'm terribly sorry for intruding, but would you be so kind as to forward your email to this email georgy(dot)mancz(odd symbol)gmail(dot)com so as to allow me to better formulate a question (concerning omniscience and providence) you will answer, thus helping a somewhat confused soul?..
