folly

‘… . For it is from within, from men’s hearts, that evil intentions emerge: …, folly. …’[1]

I knew of a young lady who had gotten a child out-of-wedlock. I asked her how it happened. She said, ‘I do not want to talk about it.’ She paused then added, ‘so stupid…’.

A friend of mine heard a similar statement from his wife when they were going through a very rough patch in their marriage: troubles stemming from unfaithfulness. After a pause in deep thought, she said, ‘so stupid!…”.

I have often pondered…

CCC 1872 Sin is an act contrary to reason.


[1] Cf.Mk7:21-22
