phrase by phrase

Spiritual Direction from St. Jane Frances de Chantal:

“Should you fall even fifty times a day, never on any account should that surprise or worry you. Instead, ever so gently set your heart back in the right direction and practice the opposite virtue, all the time speaking words of love and trust to our Lord after you have committed a thousand faults, as much as if you had committed only one. Once we have humbled ourselves for the faults God allows us to become aware of in ourselves, we must forget them and go forward.”

We can break this down, phrase by phrase and sentence by sentence in meditation.

What a beautiful way to begin our daily conversation with The Lord.

This could take a week, a month, a year- Let us allow the Holy Spirit to guide us to grow in holiness, to grow in relationship with Our Lord and to grow as HIS saint.

St. Jane Frances de Chantal, pray for us.
