On the Passion of Lust

St. Anatoly of Optina 1824-1894

The passion of lust wars against everyone, and at the toll-houses the demon of lust will boast before all the princes of darkness that he provided hell with more spoils than all the rest. Be patient, and implore Divine help! (Living Without Hypocrisy: Spiritual Counsel of the Holy Elders of Optina, pg. 5)
