Prayer: Francis de Sales

Fear is the first temptation that the enemy presents to those who have resolved to serve God, for soon as they are shown what perfection requires of them, they think, “Alas, I shall never be able to do it.” But you are armed and encompassed with the truth of God and with God’s word. Having called you, God will strengthen you and will give you the grace to persevere.
