Big Difference

The only difference between a sinner and a saint is found in their attitude toward their sins – the one persisting in them; the other weeping bitterly.

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Lack Of Remorse

More than the sin itself what displeases and offends God is the sinner not feeling any sorrow for his sins. 
St. John Chrysostom

The Unending Invisible Struggle

“Spiritual combat” is another element of life which needs to be taught anew and proposed once more to all Christians today. It is a secret and interior art, an invisible struggle in which (we) engage every day against the temptations, the evil suggestions that the demon tries to plant in (our) hearts.
Saint John Paul II (Pope)

Know Your Enemy

The devil does a great deal to incapacitate us when he sees a little fear.
St. Teresa of Avila

That We Might Hear The Voice of God

We must fly from all that can draw us away from God; we must keep ourselves in a silence both exterior and interior, that we may hear the voice of God; and we must calm all the agitations and anxieties of our mind and heart, that they may be fixed on God alone. 
Father John Nicholas Grou, S.J.
