Evening Meditations for the Fourteenth Monday After Pentecost~ St Alphonsus Liguori

Instead of flying from the dangers of sin, they fearlessly continue to put themselves voluntarily into dangerous occasions; and, instead of having recourse to God’s mercy for the pardon of their offences, they offend Him still more, and compel Him to abandon them.
