Is an act of contrition any different from an act of love?
In spite of those faults into which we fall again and again, we should remain eager to be united to Christ and to imitate him , eager to let ourselves be sanctified by him more and more. These are the signs, I assure you, of a hunger for holiness.
Tu solus Sanctus, Jesu Christe.
+ George Chevrot, The Eight Beatitudes - Ch.18, p.134
