He [Lucifer] first approached the woman, and not the man, because he knew her to be by nature more frail and weak, and because in tempting her he would be more certain that it was not Christ whom he was encountering. Against her also he was more enraged ever since he had seen the sign in heaven and since the threat, which God had made in it against him.  On all these accounts his wrath was greater against Eve than against Adam.

"On the sixth day he formed and created Adam, as it were of the age of thirty-three years.  This was the age which Christ was to suffer death, and Adam in regard to his body was so like unto Christ, that scarcely any difference existed.  Also according to the soul of Adam was similar to Christ.  From Adam God formed Eve so similar to the Blessed Virgin , that she was like unto Her in personal appearance and figure."

Fascinating! I had no idea.

And yes I know about that from my own experience whiterockdove! Hahaha!

A quote like that helps to stir oneself up against venial sins doesn't it?

At this time I am gathering quotes for a possible 'venial sins' page in the selections.

So more than one of that kind of quote is appearing to help us to rejuvenate our vigor against long term vices.

When one thinks of losing graces everytime one commits a venial sin, and how much the better life would be with more graces, it's a real added impetus to overcoming old habits isn't it?

The amount of grace and sanctifying grace is something that is less or more, it is not only, we have it, we don't have it. So there you have an additional goal after Confession.. to recover grace, and to go further.

"Let us not then be ashamed to confess the Crucified.
Be the Cross our seal made with boldness by our fingers on our brow and in everything; over the bread we eat, and the cups we drink;
in our comings in, and goings out;
before our sleep, when we lie down and when we awake;
when we are in the way and when we are still.
Great is that preservative;
 it is without price, for the poor's sake;
without toil, for the sick, since also its grace is from God.
It is the Sign of the faithful,
and the dread of evils;
for He has triumphed over them in it, having made a shew of them openly;
for when they see the Cross, they are reminded of the Crucified;
 they are afraid of Him, Who hath bruised the heads of the dragon.
Despise not the Seal, because of the freeness of the Gift;
 but for this rather honor thy Benefactor."

St. Cyril of Jerusalem.

                  In my distress I called upon the Lord and cried out to my God;     
                  From his temple he heard my voice and my cry reached his ears.

'Beginners in the service of God sometimes lose confidence when they fall into any fault. When you feel so unworthy a sentiment rising within you, you must lift your heart to God and consider that all your faults, compared with divine goodness, are less than a bit of oakum thrown into a sea of fire.'

St. Paul of the Cross

'After the suggestion comes the pleasure. When a person is not careful to banish the temptation immediately, but stops to reason with it, the thought instantly begins to delight him, and give him pleasure, and thus draws the person on to give his consent to it. As long as the will withholds the consent, the sin is only venial, and not mortal. But if the soul does not then turn to God, and make an effort to resist the pleasure, it will easily go on to give its consent. "Unless," says St. Anselm, "a person repel the pleasure, it passes into consent, and kills the soul."'

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori



How very important it is to pray in times of temptation.  Immediately we should cry: Jesus!  Mary!  Jesus, have mercy, help me!  Mary intercede for me!

'I the Lord, and there is none other, that form light, and Create darkness, make peace, and Create evil: I the Lord that do all these things.

Isaias 45:7
Original Doaui

'Formans lucem et creans tenebras, faciens pacem et creans malum: ego Dominus faciens omnia haec.'

Vulgate

The weak footnote doesn't really excuse such a weak translation of the passage. This is why we should go to the Vulgate and the original Douai.
