Evagrius Ponticus on the Holy Spirit & Prayer

The Holy Spirit in the Form of a Dove

The Holy Spirit, out of compassion for our weakness, comes to us even when we are impure. And if He only finds our intellect truly praying to Him, He enters it and puts to flight the whole array of thoughts and ideas circling within it, and He arouses it to a longing for spiritual prayer.
