Reflections from the Saints

"It should be our principal business to conquer ourselves and, from day to day, to go on increasing in strength and perfection. Above all, however, it is necessary for us to strive to conquer our little temptations... For in this way we shall acquire strength to subdue greater ones."

– St. Francis De Sales
