St. Philip Neri on aspirations

St. Philip Neri, founder of the Oratory, on the efficiency of aspirational prayer:

It is an old custom with the servants of God always to have some little prayers ready, and to be darting them up to Heaven frequently during the day, lifting their minds to God from out of the filth of this world. He who adopts this plan will get great fruit with little pains.
