“How much mercy it is necessary to have! And even those who err…. We must really be in place with ourselves. I will just recommend one virtue so dear to the Lord. He said, “Learn from me who am meek and humble of heart”. I run the risk of making a blunder, but I will say it: the Lord loves humility so much that, sometimes, he permits serious sins. Why? In order that those who committed these sins may, after repenting remain humble. One does not feel inclined to think oneself half a saint, half an angel, when one knows that one has committed serious faults. The Lord recommended it so much: be humble.”

    Thank you so much for not forgetting the Venerable John Paul I!! Too many people do. And a wonderful quote by him.
