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.
