“The elimination of evil thoughts inside us is a sign of love toward God, not of sin, since not the appearance of the thought is sin, but the friendly conversation of our mind with it. If we do not want it, why do we linger over it? It is impossible something we hate heartily to talk with our heart for a long time. If, however, that is happening, it means that our vile participation is involved…” (Abba Mark the Ascetic)
