“...be assured that in leaving the past to the mercy of God and the future to [God's] Providence you will derive from your offering very great peace and very great consolation.”
“You may yet be a great saint even though you have been a sinner.”
“As soon as we have sinned, let us humble ourselves, ask pardon of God, and go on our way as before...”
“When a fault is committed in your house, examine seriously before God whether you yourself are not the cause.”
“As long as we live we shall commit faults. This is part of our daily experience; but what we are bound to do is repair them as well as we can.”
“It is not enough to acknowledge our faults; we must correct them.”
“In short, when you have committed a fault, disavow it before God; ask [God's] pardon, promise to do better in the future. Make a good act of love, and after that, go your way as though nothing had happened.”
“As soon as you commit a fault, be sorry, rise again and go on with confidence and love.”
“Repent of your sins and failings; take resolutions to do better and, after that, be quiet. The more we stir up a dunghill, the more it exhales bad odors.”
