At the 40:00 mark, Fr. Sean Kilcawley quotes St. Francis de Sales’ Introduction to the Devout Life. The quote powerfully states the importance of overcoming sin and surrendering to the Lord.

Here’s the full quote:

“While fruits are whole, you may store them up securely, some in straw, some in sand or amid their own foliage, but once bruised there is no means of preserving them save with sugar or honey.

“Even so the purity which has never been tampered with may well be preserved to the end, but when once that has ceased to exist nothing can ensure its existence but the genuine devotion, which, as I have often said, is the very honey and sugar of the mind.”
