Friday, 29th Wk: "I take delight in the law of God"

in my inner self, but I see in my members another principle at war with the law of my mind, taking me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.

The Law entrusted to Israel never sufficed to justify those subject to it; it even became the instrument of "lust." (cf. Rom 7:7) The gap between wanting and doing points to the conflict between God's Law which is the "law of my mind," and another law "making me captive to the law of sin which dwells in my members."
-- CCC 2542
