"There is no darkness in her, although, sadly, the sins of her members veil her beauty to the eyes of the world, bring upon her reproach and insult, and make her suffer before God. If she asks for pardon it is because she recognizes as her own before God and men those who commit these sins, but not the sins themselves, which they commit only in swerving from her."

Père J. H. Nicolas, quoted in Maritain's Peasant of the Garonne.
