Saintly Words of Encouragement

Picture source

"We must not be discouraged by our faults for the children fall frequently." - St. Therese of the Child Jesus, The Complete Spiritual Doctrine of St. Therese

I think these are words uttered by our beloved Saint Therese to give us hope. We all commit sins no matter how hard we try to avoid doing so. Instead of being discouraged when we fall again and again and usually by the same faults and failings, let us remember the above words and resolve with all our hearts to no longer offend God.  I believe our Heavenly Father will judge us by our sincere efforts in trying to become perfect and not whether or not we actually achieve perfection.
