Victory in defeat

Never fight the wars against sin by yourself. As much as you try, you
can’t make it on your own. A good intention to keep away and to resist
temptation is not enough. What is needed is for you, and me, and each and
all to look up to the Cross and ask Christ to lead the battles in our
stead. May we be the weapons whereby He wins and takes it victoriously
into the next day. This way, all the glory and triumph will go to Him, not
us. For He alone is holy and worthy of praise.
“When Satan tempts me to despair,
and tells me of the guilt within,
upward I look and see him there
who made an end of all my sin”
