2 Peter 1:5-7 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, virtue with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with devotion, devotion with mutual affection, mutual affection with love.
“My child, there is much to digest in this passage, but it is a feast for your soul. Try in all ways to strengthen yourself with this exercise. Use this formula to move past your weakness and grow in holiness. Never be content to wallow in your weakness, but strive always for the higher virtues. It is in this time more than any other that spiritual strength will be put to its greatest test. Now is the time to grow in strength. Link arms with our Mother and she will assist you in ways you cannot imagine. But do your part, dear child, and try!”
Jesus help me. Forgive me for the times I have wallowed in my weakness. Blessed Mother I link arms with you and ask your miraculous help, for alone I can do nothing but fall deeper into sin. Jesus I trust in you! Amen.
