On the feast of St. Jane Frances de Chantal, a saint whose story speaks to me, here is a wonderful quote from her courtesy of Catholic Online:
“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.”
St. Jane Frances de Chantal, please pray for all wives and mothers. Amen.
