QUOTATION: The Best Motive for Contrition

St. Peter Julian Eymard
God pardons only the contrite and humble heart, and that the most powerful motive for contrition is that of divine love, regret for having offended Him who has loved us so much. It ought to make the smallest offence the greatest evil in our eyes, since it wounds a God infinitely good and amiable.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
