Bishop-Emeritus de Guoveia: Even devout and holy people will fall short of their ideals everyday

St. Francis de Sales said to his people instead of being judgemental and angry with oneself as a worthless sinner penitents should say, “Alas my poor heart! Here we are fallen into the pit we were so firmly resolved to avoid. Well, we must get up again and leave it for ever.” I resolve never to sin again.

“Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord, for you are great and do marvelous deeds, you alone are God.” (Ps 85:8,10)
