      "For many people mourning paved the way for blessed dispassion. It worked over, ploughed, and got rid of what was sinful. Someone well practiced in this said to me: 'Very often when I was tempted to be vain, angry, or gluttonous, the thought of mourning within me would protest: 'Do not be vain or else I shall abandon you.' The same thing happened when other passions troubled me. I would declare: 'I shall never disobey you until you present me to Christ.'"
