We do not need great knowledge to be
devout. If we concentrate and meditate on the few things we know, our
heart will be spiritually embroidered. One may be profoundly affected by
a single hymn, while another may feel nothing --- even though he may know all
the hymns by heart, as he has not entered into the spiritual reality.
Therefore, read the Fathers --- even one or two lines a day. They are
very strengthening vitamins for the soul.
