Wisdom of the Saints X

No matter what efforts I make, I cannot die to myself without his grace. I am like a frog which, no matter how high it leaps, always finishes up back in the mud. No matter how hard I try to escape from myself, I always come back to myself and my self-love. Draw me, then, O Lord, draw me after you; for unless you do, I cannot move even one step away from myself.

Blessed Dominic Barberi
