Spiritual reading is the food of the soul,

which renders it dauntless and strong against all temptation,

prompts it with holy thoughts and ardent desires for heaven,

enlightens the mind, strengthens the will,

and gives comfort in all afflictions, which in conclusion,

procures that true and holy joy which is found in God alone.

 - St. Ambrose
