Jean Baptiste Massillon photo

„Man, during his abode in this world, knows not his own heart.“

—  Jean Baptiste Massillon French Catholic bishop and famous preacher 1663 - 1742
Context: Man, during his abode in this world, knows not his own heart. Self-love spreads a veil over his imperfections, and conceals the knowledge of his true state, both from himself and from others. But on this day he shall be seen in his true dress, both by himself and by all mankind. The just man is disregarded and despised in this world: he is subjected in a great measure to the will of the sinner; his life is esteemed folly, and his end without honour. He, likewise, shall be seen in his true light on this day, and shall be honoured before the whole world with that honour to which his merits are entitled.
