Crime & Punishment

Then Christ will say to us, "Come you as well, come drunkards, come weaklings, come forth ye children of shame..." and he will say to us, "Ye are swine, made in the image of the Beast and with his mark, but come ye also." And the wise men, and those of understanding will say, "O Lord, why do you receive these men?" And he will say, "This is why I receive them, o ye of understanding, that not one of them believed himself to be worthy of this." And he will hold out his hands to us and we shall fall down before him... and we shall weep... and we shall understand all things! Then we shall understand all things... Lord, thy kingdom come. -Dstoyevsky
