Excellent thoughts on spiritual warfare and sin

What an excellent collection of wisdom, and perfect for Lent. Some gems:

  • The devil is never so happy as when he has succeeded in robbing one of God's servants of the joy in his or her soul.

  • Hate your defects, yes, but quietly, without excitement or anxiety. It is necessary to be patient with them and to benefit from them through holy humility. For if you lack patience, your imperfections, instead of disappearing, will only grow. Because there is nothing which strengthens our defects as much anxiety and obsession to be rid of them.
