Do not yield to despair!
“Oh, all you who are steeped in sin, and who for a time more or less long have lived as wanderers and fugitives because of your crimes…if the offenses of which you have been guilty have hardened and blinded your hearts…if to grant satisfaction to one or other of your passions you have sunk into evil ways… Ah! when the motives or accomplices of your sin have forsaken you, and you realize the state of your soul, oh then, do not yield to despair! For as long as a breath of life remains a man may have recourse to mercy and ask for pardon.”
- Excerpts From The Way of Divine Love by Josefa Menéndez
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
