How to Profit from Your Faults

How to Profit from Your Faults

Joseph Tissot

“Let us not imagine that while we are in this life we can live without imperfection.”  Drawing on the writings of St. Francis de Sales, the author provides practical guidance for turning imperfections to our spiritual advantage.  Urging us never to be discouraged by our faults, he explains the proper balance between patience with one’s faults and the desire to improve, how to distinguish true from false humility, and the critical importance of confident trust in God’s mercy.
