When you cannot see clearly and openly whether the sin is— St. Catherine of Siena, The Dialogue
deadly, you must not pass judgment in your mind, but be concerned
only about my will for that person. And if you do see it, you
must respond not with judgment, but with holy compassion,

when you pay attention to their ill will toward you rather than
my will for them.
