Grin and Bear It

Sister Mary Karen of the Sisters of Life gave me some advice worth sharing.

She said that, since the devil can't read your mind, if you're feeling yourself under spiritual attack — sad or anxious — you should smile. The reason for this is that once you smile, the devil will think that you are receiving grace from your suffering — and that will make him flee, because that's the last thing he wants.
