QUOTATION: A Refined Soul

As the soul increases in piety, she becomes more refined, for refinement flourishes, expands very naturally on love. A refined soul comes to shun venial sins with as much solicitude as others use in fleeing mortal offences. A certain sin may be only venial by nature, but it is mortal for her heart.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
