Sleep Well

A bad conscience is defined as one formed by refusing to discern God’s will and then admitting the guilt of disobeying it.

Sometimes having a clear conscience is just a sign of a bad memory.

I don't mean to suggest that one should stay up at night wondering why he sleeps soundly.

Rather, the point is that discerning right and wrong is not a self-referential act. The standard for judging right from wrong must be outside ourselves, our circle of friends, our culture, our era.
