St. John Eudes (17th century): “Experience, as well as faith, teaches us that the wicked shall find no peace. But on the contrary: those who love and serve God shall enjoy peace in abundance, which shall render their lives a thousand times sweeter and more agreeable than are the lives of those who follow their own inordinate inclinations.”
St. Robert Bellarmine: “Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart (Acts 2:37)… Therefore the Gospel not only consoles but even terrifies. For compunction is born from terror.” (De Justificatione, Book 4, Chap. 2)
