Learning Spiritual Discipline

In the spiritual life, we are meant to prod our souls to regular discipline so that in doing so our hearts will be softened to serve those whom Jesus served. The gentle Jesus wants clean hearts from us, not sacrifice; deep down basic commitment, not simply blue ribbons for winning the spiritual marathons we’ve run to make ourselves feel holy.

— from the book In God’s Holy Light: Wisdom from the Desert Monastics by Sister Joan Chittister
