On the Interior Life

The following quote of Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira is from the book, Crusader of the 20th Century by Prof. Roberto de Mattei,.

"A man must endeavor to be constantly analyzing himself. At every moment, he needs to know how his soul is; why is he acting in this way or that way; if it is licit for him to proceed in this or that way; if to feel in this or that way in face of a certain event is according to Catholic morality. This effort is called 'life', because it is so intense and should be so continuous that, for man, it constitutes an existence that unfolds of its own accord on a higher and more profound plain than his external existence. This is what is called 'interior life', precisely because it demands that man be in the uninterrupted habit of analyzing himself and controlling himself, unceasingly acting and living 'within himself.'
