Meditations by Padre Pio

In the tumult of passions and of adverse circumstances, there arises the dear hope of His inexorable mercy. Let us hurry confidently to the tribunal of penance where he, with fatherly anxiety, waits for us every moment; although cognizant of our debt to Him, let us not doubt that our sins have been solemnly forgiven. Just as our Lord has done, let us bury them.
