Some End-of-the-Week Encouragement

When you fail to measure up to your Christian privilege, be not discouraged for discouragement is a form of pride. The reason you are sad is because you looked to yourself and not to God; to your failings not to His love. You will shake off your faults more readily when you love God than when you criticize yourself. God is more lenient than you because he is perfectly good and therefore loves you more. Be bold enough then to believe that God is on your side, even when you forget to be on His.
 - Archbishop Fulton Sheen

I hate giving quotes without sources, but I cannot locate the original context for this quote.  If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it immensely.

  1. You might ask on his Facebook page. Another recently shared quote turned out to be from notes for a talk that the foundation has not yet published.
