God Will Not Ask Us to Render an Account of What Others Have Done

It is not to us that other people will have to render an account of their lives, but to God alone. But we wish to set ourselves up as judges of what does not concern us. The sins of others are for others, that is, for themselves, and our sins are our own business. God will not ask us to render an account of what others have done but solely of what we ourselves have done. Let us watch over ourselves, then, and not torment ourselves so much about others, thinking over and talking about what they have done or said.

(from the Book “The Sermons of The Cure of Ars”, TAN Books 2013, Page 55)
