Daily Writing – Easter Monday Week 3

It is indeed necessary for me, who falls and sins so often, who so quickly becomes lax and weak, to renew, cleanse, and inflame myself through frequent prayer, confession, and the holy reception of Your body, lest perhaps by abstaining too long, I fall away from my holy purpose.  For from the days of his youth the senses of man are prone to evil, and unless divine aid strengthens him, he quickly falls deeper, but Holy Communion removes him from evil and confirms him in good.

-Thomas Kempis
