The “Imitation of Christ” on Self-Mastery

By Peter Darcy | On May 10, 2016 | No Comments | In Faith and Virtue Quotes

A man must fight long and bravely against himself before he learns to master himself fully and to direct all his affections toward God. When he trusts in himself, he easily takes to human consolation. The true lover of Christ, however, who sincerely pursues virtue, does not fall back upon consolations nor seek such pleasures of sense, but prefers severe trials and hard labors for the sake of Christ.
