"Be careful not to admit into your society those delicate and sensitive people who are afraid of the
slightest pin-prick, who cry out and complain at the least pain, who know nothing of the hair-shirt, the
discipline or other instruments of penance, and who mingle, with their fashionable devotions, a most
refined fastidiousness and a most studied lack of mortification."

When we speak about wisdom, we are speaking of Christ. When we speak about virtue, we are speaking of Christ. When we speak about justice, we are speaking of Christ. When we speak about peace, we are speaking of Christ. When we speak about truth and life and redemption, we are speaking of Christ.

Or more fully, to a brother tempted by a grievous and obstinate temmptation, and near despair:

'Be not afflicted or dismayed my son. Believe me, I now consider thee a greater servant of God than before, and be assured that the more thou art tempted the dearer dost thou become to me. No one, my son, can repute himself to be a servant of God, until he has passed through temptation and tribulation. A temptation overcome, is like the ring by which God espouses a soul to Himself. Many flatter themselves upon their numerous good works, and rejoice never to have suffered tribulations and temptations. But, because they are frightened even before they begin to fight, God, knowing their weakness, does not try them with temptations; for hard combats are reserved for great virtue. It is a sign of His special favour when God leaves nothing unpunished in His servants in this world.'

This is reassuring!
Temptations aside, how does one get rid of unwanted thoughts? The more you try to banish them the more they hang around. Pray for them to melt away, they are there! Sad
