“If the power of the Holy Spirit breathes upon the afflicted mind, forthwith what was done bodily for the people of Israel takes place with us spiritually. For it is written, ‘But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea’ (Ex. 14:29). For the waters overflow those whom the active business of this world confounds with perturbation of mind. But he who is sustained in mind by the grace of the Holy Spirit passes through the waters because in the midst of crowds of people he so proceeds along his way as not to sink the head of his mind beneath the active business of the world.”

Saint Gregory the Great
