“Give us, O Lord, health of mind” As one thinks, so is his mind. The fruits of a plant make it known: the bottle gives the wine that it contains. A mind that is sound and vigorous produces sound thoughts, a mind that is sick, however, polluted thoughts (ACV, p. 92)

Ps  66: 8-9, 16-17, 20
Jn 6: 44-51

When our Father talks about trust in Divine Providence, he does not find anymore the words in his preaching. He says them himself, the words come out of him like flames, he says his sentences from the heart, without a true connection of the parts, but they are persuasive (Diary, January 7, 1919)

The first gift of ours, the first gift to give to God, is precisely that of our mind. What is it to say some prayers if then we think in a sense contrary to God? One thinks then not according to the Gospel, but against the maxims of the Gospel (AP 1958/2. P 157)

If we were only simple printers, we shall go in search of workers who are more well-paid...But we must do the opposite: give what glorifies God more, what serves souls more and what sanctifies us more: we are totally at the service of God. It is Jesus in us who produces these fruits (FSP54, p. 255)
