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
    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)

    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.
