Let your love be inflamed to correct, to amend, O Lord.
If good habits are met with, let them be praised;
if bad ones, let them be amended and corrected.
Do not love a fault in a person but love the person,
for God made man and woman, but man and woman made the fault.
Love what God made, not what man made himself.
When you love the work of man, you destroy him;
when you love the work of God, you correct him.
– Saint Augustine, On the First Letter of John, 7, 11.
