Journeying with the Founder Day #85

A clean and bright window is one thing; a very dusty window is something else, even if it is always glass. It is the same for venial sin. God’s love—always limpid, crystal clear, and pure—is spotted by venial sin. Who of us does not commit venial sins? Certainly we acknowledge that we commit venial sins not because God wants us to fall, but because we know that we are weak and frail and so commit venial sins every day. It would be beautiful if, at the end of the day, a person could say that she had not committed any venial sins. She could say to the Lord, “Look, Lord, today I did not commit any venial sins.” On such a day, God’s love would have fully triumphed in the soul of this child of love! (Charity)
