Latin Doctor Quote Of The Day

Saint Peter Damian.
”Without fail, [the vice of sodomy] brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust.”

Comment: These words are certainly strong, but it is no slight matter to abandon God's law for the sake of some fleeting passion. To confront sin such as this, is a great act of charity, the conversion of the sinner is the intention. God takes no delight in the death of His creatures, and especially not when they die after cutting themselves off from all hope. Convert today, you may be dead tomorrow.
