A saint had fallen into the company of believers and could no longer stand their continual expressions of hatred for sin.  At last he said to them: "God created all things except sin: therefore it is no wonder that He does not like it.  Yet man has created sin.  Why then should he disown this only child of his merely because it is not well regarded by God its grandfather?  Is that human?  Honour to whom honour is due—but one's heart and duty must be due firstly to the child—before the honour of the grandfather"!
