Tradcatknight: Good Friday: Sermon from St Alphonsus di Liguori
On the Number of Sins You Commit by St. Alphonsus Di Liguori “Because sentence is not speedily pronounced against the evil, the children of men commit evil without fear.”–Eccl. viii. 11.
FIRST POINT. If God instantly chastised the man who insults him, we certainly should not see Him so much outraged as we do at present. But because the Lord does not instantly punish sinners, but waits for them, they are encouraged to offend Him the more. It is necessary to understand that, though God waits and bears, he does not wait and bear forever.
