Studying the letters of St. Paul of the Cross we have discovered that praise was continually on his lips. Many days of his Spiritual Diary, for example, conclude with an expression of praise of God.
“I know that everything is from God; to him be glory and honour forever. Amen.” (November 30)
“In all things blessed be the most sweet giver of all good.” (December 2)
“May his most holy name be praised in all things.” (December 6)
“May all be for the love of the Sovereign Good, to whom be honour and glory forever.” (December 23)
“Praise God” (Lettere I, 354)
“God be blessed” (Lettere I, 340)
