“A person just recovering from illness walks as far as he’s obliged to go, with slow and weary step. In a similar way, the converted sinner journeys along as far as God commands him, but only slowly and wearily, until he attains a true spirit of devotion. Then, like a healthy person, he not only gets along, but he runs and leaps in the way of God’s commands, and he hurries gladly along the paths of heavenly counsels and inspirations.” St. Frances de Sales, Introduction to the Devout Life, I,1
