The Spiritual Eye

 The heart is the eye of the human being; the purer it is, the quicker, farther and clearer it can see. But with God's saints this spiritual eye is refined, even in this life, to the highest degree of purity possible for man, and after their death, when they are united to God, it becomes, through God's grace, able to see yet more clearly and widely. Thus the saints see our spiritual needs, they see and hear all who call upon them with a whole heart, those who fix the eyes of their mind straight upon them, undarkened and undimmed by unbelief or doubt.
