QUOTATION: To Avoid Relapse

St. Alphonsus Liguori
A soul that always walks by the single way of the fear of punishment, and from this single motive avoids sin, is always in great danger of making a relapse before long into sin; but he that attaches himself to God by love is sure not to lose him as long as he loves him.

--St. Alphonsus Liguori, The Incarnation, Birth and Infancy of Jesus Christ
