The Inward Temple

Archbishop Barlaam
Letters From Exile 0n Spiritual Life
circa 1930
excerpt:

"There is no need to weep much over the destruction of a church; after all, each of us, according to God's mercy, has or should have his own church -- the heart; go in there and pray, as much as you have strength and time. If this church is not well made and is abandoned [without inward prayer], then the visible church will be of little benefit."
