Sivu 64 - ... thoughts present themselves, his mind cannot throw them off, any more than if it were some dead thing, and not spirit ; but they then make an impression on him which he is not able to resist. Or again, weakness of body often hinders him from fixing his mind on his prayers, instead of making him pray more fervently ; or again, weakness of body is often attended with languor and listlessness, and strongly tempts a man to sloth.

Thus, not till the thirteenth century was there any direct and distinct avowal, on the part of the Church, of the numerical Unity of the Divine Nature, which the language of some of the principal Greek fathers, prima facie, though not really, denies.
Sivu 64 - ... resist : or again ; weakness of body often hinders him from fixing his mind on his prayers, instead of making him pray more fervently: or again, — weakness of body is often attended with languor and listlessness, and strongly tempts a man to sloth.
