If mercy meant the forgiveness of all faults without retribution and without justice, it would end in the multiplication of wrongs.
-- Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
Does Mercy Stand Alone?
Sorry. Our permission to have this article of Fulton Sheen online has expired, but here was a zinger from it:
"What some today call mercy is not mercy at all, but a feather-bed for those who fall from justice; and thus they multiply guilt and evil by supplying such mattresses."
