“Perfection doesn’t consist in ecstasies but in doing the Will of God. […] Now, who will be the most perfect of all human beings? It will be the one whose will is most in conformity with that of God, with the result that perfection consists in uniting our will so closely to that of God that, strictly speaking, His and ours are only one and the same will and non-will, and the more someone excels on this point, the more perfect he will be.” (St. Vincent de Paul, Correspondence, Conferences, Documents, XI, en, 285-6).
