What a kind, loving, compassionate injunction to Dante. Keep it in mind if you find yourself berating yourself. 

And if you are experiencing grief, I hope you find the means to unload it soon. 


“Much greater faults than yours are washed away

By much less shame,” my Master said.  “Unload

Your heart of all grief…”
