A practical way to win in a fight with sin.

The following quote comes from Fr. Benedict Groeschel in his book The Courage to Be Chaste. Click here to read my review of it.

Do something else.

Temptation cannot occur when one is occupied; therefore, step out of the present scene as dramatically as you can.

Call a friend, go to the movies, get involved with someone else’s problems. Calling the police or throwing a pie at someone may be a bit much, but some activity that breaks the pattern of your present situation is called for.

It’s amazing how few people are tempted to sin during a fire alarm.
