Jean-Pierre de Caussade
Strip away the fascination of the senses, kill and destroy them, and then you will be ruled by faith, for your senses worship created things. Take away from the senses what they worship and they will weep like deserted children, but faith must triumph, for nothing can destroy the will of God. When the senses are really attacked, starved and stripped, they collapse, and faith becomes stronger and more alive than ever.
Abandonment to Divine Providence, p.41
