Thought of the Day August 8, 2017 Overcoming passions

By 11:26 AM

“A man who governs his passions is master of the world. We must either command them or be enslaved to them. It is better to be the hammer than the anvil.” (St. Dominic) Our passions are part of our life. How we deal with them will determine whether we are their master or their slave. As master, they can be directed towards good. As slave, they will lead us to evil. We can only master our passions with the grace and strength of God, directing them for his service. If we become enslaved by our passions, we will forget our true identity, believing lies rather than embracing truth. As slave, we will prefer the darkness rather the light.
