Get Off Your Arse and Quit Sinning

  • self doubt
  • hatred
  • lust
  • jealousy
  • anger
  • resentment

If, however, our mind is occupied, we can avoid a lot of that.

So rather than surf the net or zone out in front of Netflix, go walking, hit the gym, read a good book, say a rosary, exercize. If you ever feel tempted, drop what you are doing and take a prayer walk.

I am telling you that this works. Plus it keeps us from being lazy farts. So get up and do something today.
