Do Not Be Discouraged - Ponder These Words of Wisdom

By our human nature, we are prone to sin. It is only with God's grace that we  have any hope of thwarting the Evil one's desire to destroy our souls. 

Do not succumb to Satan's invitation to become discouraged. Have courage. Fight the good fight. When you fail, pick yourself up, recall these words of St. Francis de Sales and get back into the fight:


  1. Indeed. Patience hasn't been one of my strong suits.

  2. Keeping my eyes and heart focused on the power of God's mercy instead of the weakness within me, gives great hope and is a cause for joy!
