"Both body and mind have a part to play in spiritual development and must not be neglected in favor of the spirit. Genuine Christian asceticism never polarizes body and spirit. Voices that accuse the ancients of overemphasizing the spirit to the neglect of the body usually come from moderns who themeslves lack the spiritual and mental discipline to resist overindulging themselves."
– Simon Chan, Spiritual Theology, 59.
