St Justin Popovich | What is purity of intellect?

“What is purity of intellect? Purity of intellect is the achievement, through striving in the virtues, of divine illumination.”

It is the fruit of ascetic effort in the virtues. The practice of the virtues increases grace in a man, and the bringing of grace to the intellect cleanses it from impure thoughts.

St Justin Popovich
