We wish to look through unclouded eyes

How beautiful is holy purity! But it is not holy, nor pleasing to God, if we separate it from charity.
Charity is the seed that will grow and yield rich fruit under the fertile rain of purity.
Without charity, purity is barren, and its sterile waters turn the soul into a swamp, into a cesspool from which rises the stench of pride.
