DIVINE INTIMACY, by Fr Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D.

In the face of an act which is blameworthy in itself, we are evidently not obliged to consider it good; nevertheless, we must excuse the intention of the one who committed it and not simply attribute it to a perverse will. “If our neighbor’s acts had one hundred facets, we should see only the best one; and then, if the act is blameworthy, we should at least excuse the intention” (St. Teresa Margaret of the Heart of Jesus)

  1. Very good spiritual advice. I'll have to try not only to remember that, but also to put it into practice.
