What a state I’m in!

5 May 2022

How greatly has sin corrupted me! Every evil, wicked and unclean thing enters my thoughts, and my heart feels it. Everything good, on the other hand, everything just, pure and holy, remains no more than a thought and my heart doesn’t feel it. What a state to be in! Evil and wickedness are closer to my heart than goodness and benevolence.
