Those Who Don’t Sin

“Monsieur le Cure,” said a pompous French magistrate to his pastor, “I never go to confession for the simple reason that I never sin.”

“That may be,” said the Cure, “and if so, I am heartily sorry for you; because I know of only two kind of people who do not sin: those who have not as yet come to the use of reason, and those who have lost it.” —The Liguorian 1924
