Concerning a Correct Disposition Towards Our Own Faults



Shouldn't we, as Christians (of the one true, Christian faith that has been passed down directly from Christ via the very tradition that he instructed the Apostles, and their successors, to pass down) find it not only easy to apologize (keeping in mind always, first, how God might see us) but find pleasure in doing so (that we might have find, next opportunity, a better away to please God)? We ought to find fault with ourselves where even our brother does not find fault, and where our brother does find true fault in us, thank him for the reprimand? We, Catholics, who live for Christ, seeking to remain in that Life of Christ in the Sacraments, live for God and not for ourselves, that we might say one day, along with the apostle, "And I live, now not I; but Christ liveth in me. And that I live now in the flesh: I live in the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered himself for me.
[21] I cast not away the grace of God. For if justice be by the law, then Christ died in vain." ---- Galatians 2:20-21
