Grace upon grace

"Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin.
All hope consists in confession. In confession there is a chance for mercy.
Believe it firmly. Do not doubt, do not hesitate, never despair of the mercy of God. Hope and have confidence in confession." - St Isidore of Seville
If we confess our sins, He who is upright can be depended upon to forgive sins,
and to cleanse us from every wrong.  – I John 1:9
"Of the gifts of grace which
the soul receives in the Eucharist,
one must be counted among the highest;
the Eucharist does not allow the soul
to remain long in sin
or to persist in it obstinately."
St. Ignatius of Loyola
Spain ~ 1491-1556
Priest, Founder of Society of Jesus (Jesuits)
The Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius - classic - a MUST READ! 
Jesuit motto:  Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam (A.M.D.G.)

FEAST DAY - July 31
"Some of us would be surprised if they knew what God
could make of them if, in the decisive moments of their lives, 
they gave ear to the voice of grace!"  - St Ignatius of Loyola

St Ignatius, pray for us!
