St. Mark the Asectic on cooperating with grace

“Grace has been given mystically to those who have been baptized into Christ; and it becomes active within them to the extent that they actively observe the commandments. Grace never ceases to help us secretly; but to do good — as far as lies in our power — depends on us.” – St. Mark the Ascetic, On Those who Think They are Made Righteous by Works, 61
