Purification of the heart is received primarily in silent prayer, under the action of the Holy Spirit.
Purification of the intelligence is more "active" and entails the discovery of a realistic view of oneself, the other, and the world to which we belong. In such a discovery, we always need teachers to guide us: "deceased" teachers - for us, Aristotle and St. Thomas - and living teachers who invite and help us to embark upon a personal search for the truth.
The purpose of all this is to love better: truth intensifies our love for God and our brothers and and enables us to love more freely.
