"I count up Your graces and Your mercies, because You have melted my sins away as if they were ice.
"And whatever evils I have not done, that too I reckon as Your grace. For what might I have done when I loved vice for its own sake?
"I acknowledge that all things have been forgiven me, both the evils I did of my own free will, and those which, by Your guidance, I did not actually do." (St. Augustine)
