Isaac of Nineveh for Lent XXII

Prayer is the mortification of the will's motions pertaining to the life of the flesh. For a man who prays correctly is the equal of a man who is dead to the world. And the meaning of 'to deny oneself' is this: courageously to persevere in prayer.

Homily 66 (p. 470).
