Saint Francis de Sales

Each day as we begin our celebration of the Mass, we know enough to confess our sinfulness. As we recall our sins Saint Francis de Sales would recommend the following, “… when you have fallen, lift up your heart in quietness, humbling yourself deeply before God because of your frailty, without marveling that you fell; there is no cause to marvel because weakness is weak…” We need not be surprised by our sins, God is not, he only delights to be merciful. Let continually open to him and the mercy he longs to lavish upon us.
