Why Are You Ashamed?


“Let it be said to one who experiences shame: Why are you ashamed to speak of your sin, when you were not ashamed to commit it? Why do you blush to confess it to God from whose eyes it cannot be hidden? If, perhaps, you are ashamed to reveal your sin to another human being who is also a sinner, what are you going to do on Judgement Day when your conscience will be laid bare in the sight of all?” ~St Bernard of Clairvaux
