“It is the custom of the Roman Church which I unworthily serve with the help of God, to tolerate some things, to turn a blind eye to some, following the spirit of discretion rather than the rigid letter of the law.”

Full well they merit all they feel, and more:
Unawd by precepts, human or divine,
Like birds and beasts, promiscuously they join.”
