Every morning, before doing anything else, you must beg God to give you gentleness of spirit, so necessary for souls pledged to His service, and resolve for your part to exercise it particularly toward those persons to whom you owe the most. If you do this you will be very happy, because God will live in the center of your heart, which will remain totally at peace. If, however, it happens that you fail in this matter, do not lose heart, but immediately step back into line, just as if you had never fallen.
