Reading and the Mind

“When we read a short but powerful chapter from the Gospel or a passage from the Gerontikon [lives of saints], ¬†our minds are transported to the spiritual realm and do not leave. You see, the mind is like a lively child, running about in constant play. Entice it with spiritual candy, and it will not run away anymore.”
(Elder St. Paisios in ‘With Pain and Love’)
