Prayer: Francis de Sales

If you happen to do something you regret, humble yourself quietly before God and try to regain your gentle composure. Say to your soul, "There, we have made a mistake, but let's go on now and be more careful. Then, when you are inwardly peaceful, don't miss the opportunity to perform as many acts of gentleness as you can, no matter how small these acts may seem, for, as our Lord says, "To the person who is faithful in little things, greater ones will be given.
