Pure Prayer Fears No Evil

Evagrius Ponticus inspired this altered book spread.

"Crashing sounds and roars and voices and beatings--all of these, coming from the devil--are heard by the man who pursues the practice of pure prayer. Yet he does not lose courage nor his presence of mind. He calls out to God: 'I shall fear no evils for you are with me.' "

Evagrius Ponticus from An Anthology of Christian Mysticism.
