May the Holy Spirit teach me this until it’s what I breathe.
“We see in the lives of the saints, these are people who are ready to die. And they’re not just ready to die, they prefer to die than to grieve God, than to lose grace, than to suffer even a diminution of grace. When you are struggling against the passions, you see that the passion will always have a hold on you, until you’re willing to die rather than to commit the sin that the passion suggests. That’s why the Christian life is a martyric life. We die daily.”
– Dr. Christopher Veniamin
