Christ in His Mysteries

Squandering Grace Drives Out the Holy Spirit

So long as we are here below the appeals of Eternal Kindness are unceasing.  But let us not be among those who, by continued squandering of grace, and the habit of deliberate sin, even though it be venial, harden themselves to the point of no longer understanding those appeals.  Let us beware of driving the Holy Spirit from the temple of our soul by willed and obstinate resistance.  Mercy is never lacking to a soul, it is the soul that, being lacking towards mercy, provides justice.  Page 264
