As we grow detached from things, we come (with God's help) to master our desires, and we give the mastery over to God. Discipline and divine grace heal the intellect and the will of the effects of concupiscence. We can begin to see things clearly.
Salvation history reveals sin as literally a broken home.
We.. Sin not because we want what is evil, but because we want what isn't good enough.
Only when we cease to rely on our own strength can we discover that God's strength is always there for us.
At the root of all misery is unfulfilled desire.
Love is something worth suffering for..
If you complain to someone, you assume that it's someone who really cares about you.
[God] disciplines us for our good, that we may share His holiness.
He gave our pain and struggles a holy significance, a redemptive power, which makes it a privilege for us to suffer with Christ.
