Saint Josemaria Prayer Card

Saint Josemaria Prayer Card

Christians have always had recourse to the intercession of saints: their example shows us that it is possible to grow in holiness, and their prayer before God can be especially helpful in times of need.

Message of the day

“Do not enter into dialogue with temptation”

You wade into temptations, you put yourself in danger, you fool around with your sight and with your imagination, you chat about ... stupidities. And then you are anxious that doubts, scruples, confusion, sadness and discouragement might assail you. You must admit that you are not very consistent. (Furrow, 132)

We have to instill in our souls a true horror for sin. Lord - say it with a contrite heart - may I never offend you again! But don't be frightened when you become aware of the burden of your poor body and of human passions: it would be silly and childishly naive to find out now that "this" exists.  Your wretchedness is not an obstacle but a spur for you to become more united to God and seek him constantly, because He purifies us. (Furrow, 134)

Do not enter into dialogue...
