"Pere Grou's great theme in the Spiritual Maxims is his insistence on the following of the spirit of Christ as opposed to what he calls the natural spirit, or the spirit of private judgment. Prayer for him is contemplative prayer, or the prayer of the interior way. Not that he despised formal meditation by any means, but he regarded it always as a stepping-stone towards a higher form of prayer, the intimate prayer of the spirit. His great aim and desire was to urge and encourage souls not to be afraid, but to persevere in a wholehearted gift of themselves to God, and in a faithful surrender to the guidance of the Holy Ghost." Translator A Monk Of Parkminster St. Alphonsus writes: "a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery." First Maxim: By the ladder of sanctity, men ascend and descend at the same time, which leads to knowledge of God and true knowledge of self. Second Maxim: Yield your liberty to God, and have no will but His Third Maxim: Pray for a wise guide whom, when you have found, trust, revere and obey Fourth Maxim: Be always mindful of the God Who is present everywhere, and Who dwells in the hearts of the just Fifth Maxim: Keep close to Our Lord in His mysteries, and draw the purest love from His salutary wounds Sixth Maxim: Make good use of the two sacraments, whereof one brings cleansing, and the other life, that is Penance and the Holy Eucharist Seventh Maxim: Let your intention be pure, and your devotion simple and upright Eighth Maxim: Follow the enlightening spirit of Christ: mistrust the blindness and treachery of the natural mind Ninth Maxim: Take no account of external things: seek strenuously after those blessings which are to be found within Tenth Maxim: Listen to Him Who teaches the heart without sound of words. Receive His peace, and guard it faithfully Eleventh Maxim: Treat God as a child treats his Father amd thus acquire a child-like spirit Twelfth Maxim: Beware of resisting the leadings of grace: be thoroughly generous in great things and in small Thirteenth Maxim: Never cease to struggle with the enemy that lives within the soul, and practice holy mortification Fourteenth Maxim: When God bids you be still in prayer, humble yourself silently before His Majesty Fifteenth Maxim: Cling not to sensible sweetness: suffer dryness with a good heart Sixteenth Maxim: The tempter combines cunning with violence: we must meet him with prayer and vigilance Seventhteenth Maxim: Beware of self-love, the rival of the love of God Eighteenth Maxim: Stay quietly at home: regulate your day, and waste no time Nineteenth Maxim: Let charity and piety begin at home, that is always fulfill your daily duties. Twentieth Maxim: Be cordial and kind, gentle and lowly; considerate towards others, severe upon yourself Twenty-First Maxim: Go straight on: never stop or look back. Grieve for sin, but never lose courage Twenty-Second Maxim: When we know our own helplessness, we learn to appreciate the value and efficacy of grace Twenty-Third Maxim: Love is our law: God is our portion; here by faith, in heaven by sight. Twentieth Maxim: Social Relationships Be cordial and kind, gentle and lowly; considerate towards others, severe upon yourself

The first time I saw Brother Lawrence, was upon the 3d of August, 1666. He told me that GOD had done him a singular favor, in his conversion at the age of eighteen. That in the winter, seeing a tree stripped of its leaves, and considering that within a little time the leaves would be renewed and after that the flowers and fruit appear, he received a high view of the Providence and Power of GOD, which has never since been effaced from his soul. That this view had perfectly set him loose from the world, and kindled in him such a love for GOD, that he could not tell whether it had increased during the more than forty years he had lived since. That he had been footman to M. Fieubert, the treasurer, and that he was a great awkward fellow who broke everything. That he had desired to be received into a monastery, thinking that he would there be made to smart for his awkwardness and the faults he should commit, and so he should sacrifice to GOD his life,...
