Second Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24

Assuredly nothing can so humble us before the compassion of God as the abundance of His mercies; nothing so humble us before His justice as the abundance of our misdeeds. Let us reflect on all He has done for us, and all we have done against Him; and as we count over our sins in detail, even so let us count over His mercies.

~St Francis de Sales~
