In Buenos Aires I met a Capuchin friar, a little younger than me, who
was a great confessor. He always has a long queue, lots of people, and
he confesses all day. He is a great “forgiver”, he forgives so much. And
sometimes he feels guilty for having forgiven so much.
Once we were
talking and he said: “Sometimes I feel guilty”.
And I asked him: “And
what do you do when you feel guilty like that?”
“I go before the
tabernacle, I look at the Lord and say to Him: Lord, forgive me, today I
forgave so much, but let it be very clear that it is all your fault,
because you were the one who set me the bad example!”
