QUOTATION: How God Forgives

God pardons absolutely and forever. He casts our sins behind His back, say the Scriptures, He plunges them into the sea, and the scarlet of crime assumes the whiteness of snow, of innocence, in the bath of His mercy. They will never again rise up to accuse us! I love this thought of a large number of theologians, according to whom, they will not even be mentioned at the Last Judgment, because the Lord says "I will pardon you them, and I shall remember them no more!"

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
