Prayer without mortification lasts but a short time
“St. Francis Borgia says that prayer introduces the love of God into the soul, but mortification prepares a place for it, by banishing from the heart earthly affections – the most powerful obstacles to charity… ‘Prayer without mortification,’ says Father Balthasar Alvarez, ‘is either an illusion, or lasts but a short time.’” (St. Alphonsus Liguori)
St. Thomas Aquinas (1274): Whether the Angels Were Produced By God From All Eternity: “I answer that, God alone, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, is from eternity. Catholic Faith holds this without doubt; and everything to the contrary must be rejected as heretical. For God so produced creatures that He made them from nothing; that is, after they had not been.” (Summa Theologiae, Pt. 1, Q. 61, A. 2.)
