Those who belong to Christ, they crucify their flesh along with its lusts and desires. Galatians 5:24.
Dear human being, if you wish to obtain the piety which avails before God, you must completely and totally give yourself over to Christ and accept Him for yourself, so that everything that was His is now yours, and what was yours is now His. For thus you begin to live in divine love and actually become a different person, totally new born, and everything that is in you is turned completely around. Here then you will have such a great lust for chastity like you previously had for non-chastity, and forthwith with all lusts and desires. However thereupon we must be aware that we also do not doubt when we still feel sinful desires within us and everything is still not all too clean like we eagerly wanted it to be. While you still are here in flesh and blood, you will not be able to completely sweep out these droppings [of feces].
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from Thy presence, and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation and uphold me with Thy free Spirit. Amen.
The peace of the Lord be with us all,
