The greatest sin...
John A Cassani
So true. Aquinas deals with this in II-II, q. 144, on the passion of verecundia, or “shamefacedness.” Men of vice, devoid of grace, are quite unlikely to have this passion. Of course, the powers that be would rather see us have compassion for trees and such.

Love this Pope but he was being subtle. The greatest sin is hatred of God..."all who hate me love death.” Pro 8:36, a la Satan who promotes spiritual death and physical death.
