QUOTATION: Fight One's Own Weaknesses

St. Peter Julian Eymard
Against one's innate misery, against that weakness it entails, which mounts not upward, which incessantly falls back on self, neither struggle nor violence must be employed, but the humility and the patience of meekness. One must accept his state just as it is, and take it to God in the same way. You are weak in mind, and still more in heart? Offer that to God. Otherwise, what will you do? We cannot kill ourselves to change ourselves. In vain, will you be angry against yourself and vex yourself for not being perfect.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
