What I Desire Most: A Certain Calmness

Bishop Fenelon
What I most desire for you is a certain calmness, which comes from recollection, detachment, and love of God. Occupy yourself as little as possible about external matters. Give at proper season a quiet, calm attention to those things assigned to your care by Providence; leave the rest. We do much more by quiet, tranquil labor in the presence of God, then by the greatest eagerness and over-activity of a restless nature.
Fenelon’s Spiritual Letters
