A Daily Quote for Lent

A Daily Quote for Lent: Fight sin and put up with trials, by Augustine of Hippo, 430-543 A.D.

“Your first task is to be dissatisfied with yourself, fight sin, and transform yourself into something better. Your second task is to put up with the trials and temptations of this world that will be brought on by the change in your life and to persevere to the very end in the midst of these things.” (excerpt from Commentary on Psalm 59,5)
