Fr. Jean d'Elbée

I believe in Love, page 23

"People examine themselves in terms of what is forbidden them and not in terms of what is asked of them. People examine themselves on faults and failings, and not on their intimacy with Jesus. It has been rightly said that sins of omission - of which we rarely think to accuse ourselves - are more frequent than the others:  lack of faith, of hope and of charity, failure to believe in God's merciful love and to live in it. I assure you, we are bathed in love and mercy."
