Remedies Against Small Temptations; Advice from Saint Francis de Sales


Excellent post! Thank you!

Oh, okay. That’s something to try.

There is also another view. To thank God that he trusts us to overcome the temptation. That we offer the struggle out of love for him and thank him for his confidence in us. This can be turned into a greater opportunity of denial to ourselves for love of him. And because it is done out of love for him, it means so much more to him.
