Examin Sunday 25 October 2014

keep the prospect of death always before you

'A person who lives as if he were to die every day – given that our life is uncertain by definition – will not sin, for good fear extinguishes most of the disorder of our appetites; whereas he who thinks he has a long life ahead of him will easily let himself be dominated by pleasures.'

St Athanasius, Adversas Antigonum
