Distress of Regret

Jean-Pierre de Caussade in The Joy of the Saints

To escape the distress caused by regret for the past or fear about the future, this is the rule to follow: leave the past to the infinite mercy of God, the future to his good providence; give the present wholly to his love by being faithful to his grace.
