Principles and Practices - March 15

Courage - And Go On

When thou art beginning to correct a fault, an evil habit, and thou shouldst transgress thy law a first, a second, a third, nay, a twentieth time, do not despair, but rise up again, and resume the same diligence, and thou shalt surely prevail.

-St. Chrysostom.
