“Grace hides its presence in him who was baptized, waiting for the soul to desire it. When the whole man has completely turned himself towards God, then in an ineffable experience grace reveals it is present in the heart… If the man starts making progress abiding by the commandments and tirelessly crying out the Name of Lord Jesus Christ, then the fire of Divine grace flares up to the utmost limits of the heart, burning up clearly and apparently the whole chaff of the soil of man’s being…” (Saint Diadochus of Photike)
