"Depraved by prosperity and unchastened by adversity, you desire not the peace of the state but liberty for license....Though crushed by the enemy, you put no check on immorality, you learned no lesson from calamity; in the depths of sorrows you still wallow in sin." -- St. Augustine, City of God, I, 33 (tr. by D.B. Zema, SJ and G.G. Walsh, SJ)
Psalm 1: (5) Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; (6) for the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
