I try to keep that particular chapter in mind, in dealing with others' defects.

It has been published under a few different titles. The book from which I quoted was published under the title "My Imitation of Christ".

The Confraternity of the Precious Blood prints them for about $5-6 dollars per book (plus shipping), I believe.  I bought mine at a used book store for $2.5 dollars.

Yes, myself included, and I think it is particularly useful when attempting to navigate the various different personalities, opinions, peculiarities, and quirks of the posters on this forum.

I'd do well to bear it in mind more often.  I rarely do.

Unfortunately, I can't say I am devoid of these tendencies either. This chapter is encouraging, though, because it puts it into perspective. We should judge ourselves more harshly than we judge others, if we are to judge them at all.

It is an important lesson to follow even one just incrementally improves oneself.

I would think that both charity and justice would require one to do so.
