Correcting ignorance is like overcoming darkness: you light a lamp, the darkness disappears. But to commit a mistake once again knowing it to be a mistake is like having a light and voluntarily putting it out …. That corresponds exactly to bringing back the darkness willingly. For the argument of weakness does not hold. There is always the divine grace to help those who have decided to correct themselves, and they cannot say: “i am too weak to correct myself.” They can say they haven’t yet taken the resolution to correct themselves, that there is somewhere in the being something that has not decided to do it, and it is that that’s serious. The argument of weakness is an excuse. The grace is there to give the supreme strength to whoever takes the resolution.
