Christopher Veniamin: “the Christian life is a martyric life”

May the Holy Spirit teach me this until it’s what I breathe.

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
