Daily with De Sales: 9/11/07

When you are harassed by temptations, do not fight them, but after an act of the corresponding virtue, turn your heart to Christ crucified and lovingly kiss in spirit His sacred feet. This is the best way to gain to victory over your enemy in both small and great temptations. As the love of God contains in itself the perfection of all other virtues, so it is the very best remedy against every vice and against the evil spirit. When he sees all his temptations brushed aside by the love of God, he stops molesting us.
-- INT. Part IV, Ch. 9; O. III, pp. 307-308

It was just a whim that I clicked on your site today ... since I'm not often on anymore. That blurb from De Sales is really nice and helpful, especially for me at this moment. Thanks!

I'm glad it helped. That's what I was hoping these daily quotations from St. Francis de Sales would do.
