Sin. A Serious Thing.

'Oh, what a serious thing sin is, for it was enough to kill God with so many sorrows!  And how surrounded You are by them, my God!  Where can You go that they do not torment You?  Everywhere mortals wound You...

'What extraordinary ingratitude, my King!  That we serve the devil with what You Yourself gave us!  ...Oh, my God, how much You suffer for one who grieves so little over Your pains!'
