Even small sins can have a corrupting influence on our souls. But we can fundamentally redirect our course by committing ourselves to making good choices every day.

Life with Christ is beautiful and radical, but it’s not won without detachment. We have to be ready to give up what is of this earth, so that we are free to be open to what is of God.
