QUOTATION: Confessing Venial Sins

St. Peter Julian Eymard
It is, however, as says the Council of Trent, a laudable and salutary custom to confess all the venial sins that we remember. But what I wish is that you do not go too much into detail, be not too punctilious in your accusations. God does not exact so rigorous an examen. It is that rigor which exposes you to the loss of liberty and peace of mind, of sweet and gentle piety of heart.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
