“They who are baptised in the Catholic Church, through the baptism mystically receive grace, which dwells in them hidden. Afterwards, in the measure of one’s fulfilment of the commandments and hope, it reveals in the faithful, according to the Lord’s words: ‘He who believes in Me… from his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive (John 7:38-39)… when you have noticed assistance in your heart, know that it has not appeared from outside, but the grace you had been given mystically at Baptism has become active.” (Abba Mark the Ascetic)
