The devil cannot enter the soul that is in love with Christ.
You don’t become holy by fighting evil but by love — St Porphyrios
You don’t become holy by fighting evil. Let evil be. Look towards Christ and that will save you. What makes a person saintly is love!
We are slaves to our vices; freedom is found in goodness — Augustine of Hippo
The good man, though a slave, is free; the wicked, though he reigns, is a slave, and not the slave of a single man, but — what is worse — the slave of as many masters as he has vices.
