A Necessary Bit of Sanity

From a letter of St. Therese of Lisieux: "Since He has granted it to me to understand the love of the Heart of Jesus, I confess that He has chased all fear out of my heart. The memory of my faults humiliates me, leads me never to rely on my own strength, which is nothing but weakness; but even more this memory speaks to me of mercy and love. When we throw our faults, with a completely filial confidence into the devouring furnace of love, how could they not be totally consumed?" Have you been to confession lately?
