Daily Virtue Quote – St. Catherine of Siena

"God said, 'This is that sin which is never forgiven, now or ever: the refusal, the scorning, of my mercy. For this offends me more than all the other sins they have committed. So the despair of Judas displeased me more and was a greater insult to my Son than his betrayal had been.'" -St. [...]
