In Touch with the Holy Ghost

The Holy Ghost
is called by fasting,
is stirred up by prayer,
is invited by vigils,
is moved by silence,
is retained by almsgiving;
contemplation or meditation bring Him,
repentance introduces Him,
continence receives Him,
charity ministers to Him,
peace sweetens His gifts.

~ Petrus Cellensis, Bishop of Chartres (12th c.)
