Overcoming Sinful Thoughts
How to Realign Your Thinking and Defeat Harmful Ideas
Fr T.G. Morrow

Shows us how the devil uses our thoughts to throw us off balance and draw us into sin.

I regard it as of extreme utility to all sorts of persons and I unhesitantly assert that among all spiritual treatises, there is none and there can be none, more necessary than that which treats on prayer as a means of obtaining eternal salvation.” —Rev. Eugene Grimm
