Choosing between two goods...

 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction,
faithful in prayer. - Romans 12:12

"Prayer purifies us, reading instructs us.
Both are good when both are possible.
Otherwise, prayer is better than reading."
~ from Book of Maxims by Saint Isidore

"Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin. All hope consists in confession. In confession there is a chance for mercy. Believe it firmly. Do not doubt, do not hesitate, never despair of the mercy of God.  Hope and have confidence in confession." - St. Isidore of Seville

St Isidore of Seville, pray for us!
