"When a person commits a fault, God
certainly wishes him to humble himself, to be sorry for his sin, and to purpose
never to fall into it again; but he does not wish him to be indignant with
himself, and give way to trouble and agitation of mind; for, while the soul is
agitated, a man is incapable of doing good."
— St. Alphonsus De Liguori, The Sermons of St.
Alphonsus De Liguori, p. 259
