On Falling Again into Sin

"Now, we ought never be troubled; but when we see ourselves on the ground, we must raise ourselves up again quietly.  At once we must turn to God with love and humility and ask His pardon; and then we must never think about the fault again, until the time comes to accuse ourselves of it in confession.  And even if in confession we forget it, there is no occasion to be uneasy on that account."

"What will it matter, after all, how many times you have fallen on the way if you reach your journey's end safely at last?  God will not reproach you."
