Daily with De Sales: 11/28/07

You ask me why it is that we receive the Holy Spirit and with Him all His gifts when we receive the sacraments with the right dispositions, and yet we fall so often into sin? We go to confession, in which we receive the Holy Spirit with the remission of our sins, and yet it so often happens that we fall back into the same sins after our confession. This is because we lack courage; we are too weak.
-- Sermons 70; O. X, pp. 425-426

Yea, for real. That quote in particular sounds like something that St. Josemaria Escriva would say.
