The nineteenth day
Is it not a shameful and cursed boldness that the poor man who only deserves in all things to be crossed, dares to imagine that he will first apply himself seriously to the service of God, when God the Lord shall grant him this or that which he would gladly possess? How so? Though the Lord should never give us what we wish, yet we are still equally obliged to do that which He requires. Therefore, Lord! grant that I may in the first place practise what Thou requirest, knowing that this is the readiest way to obtain what I would gladly have.
Redeeming The Time!
