CQOD: 06/22/06 -- Francois de Sales: confession

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 22, 2006
Feast of Alban, first Martyr of Britain, c.209
Meditation:
    Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
    -- James 5:16 (ESV)

Quotation:
    It is an abuse to confess any kind of sin, mortal or venial, without a will to be delivered from it, since confession was instituted for no other end.
    ... Fran├žois de Sales (1567-1622), Introduction to the Devout Life

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my confessions are so often false. Grant me new strength to amend my faults.
