"Struggling in the midst of conflict or of temptation, therefore, we ought to resist Satan with trust in the Intercessor and say: 'If I am a sinner,' what then? God is merciful. If I am unfit for prayer because of my sins, well and good. I do not want to become more fit. For, woe is me. I am more than fit for prayer, because I am an exceedingly great sinner.
