QUOTATION: Spiritual Corruption

Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis)
It would be fair to say that sins are forgiven but corruption cannot be forgiven. This is simply because at the bottom of every corrupt attitude is a weariness with the transcendent: instead of God, who never tires of forgiving, the corrupt person sets himself up as sufficient for his own salvation-- he has tired of asking for forgiveness.

--Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis), "Corruption and  Sin",  The Way of Humility, 2005
