Catechesis: Second Commandment
No one is so bold as to boast to all the world of the wickedness he has done. All wish to act by stealth and without anyone being aware of what they do. So, if anyone is caught sinning, God’s name is dragged into the affair and must make wickedness look like godliness, and the shame like honor. This is the common way of the world.—LC I:59,60.
