I am trying to find a reference which contains an actual quote from Ven. Leo Dupont, which, as I recollect, can be paraphrased as "... but I have never made peace with my sins."

Is anyone familiar with the complete and actual quote, and can tell me where to find it?

Related to this question is How does the Catholic Church tell us to do reparation for our sins according to Church teachings? in which a reference to Ven. Leo Dupont is made.

The quote is from Ven. Louis da Ponte (not Ven. Leo Dupont):

"I have committed many faults, but I have never made peace with my faults. Many make peace with their defects, and this shall cause their ruin."

A reference to this is made by St. Alphonsus Liguori in his book Dignity and Duties of the Priest page 103:

The Venerable Louis da Ponte used to say: "I have committed many faults, but I have never made peace with my faults. Many make peace with their defects, and this shall cause their ruin."
