“A person is never entirely bad. Each person has his good and bad points. When you remember his good points, you pray for him, you are moved, your soul feels for him, and you entreat God for him. And as for his bad side, he is not to blame, but our enemy the devil is. Therefore, don’t be sad, my child, and don’t remember the past. For those things have passed.” Elder Joseph the Hesychast
