Learn to deny yourself

June 11

"If you do not learn to deny yourself, you can make no progress in perfection."

-St. John of the Cross

Today's Reflection:

In this consumerist and self-centered culture, self-denial is out-of-step unless it helps us lose weight or increase physical fitness. Why is a "lean soul" and a "muscular spirit" necessary for spiritual perfection?
