“It is God alone who both gives virginity and protects it. And God is love! Love, therefore, is the guardian of virginity, but humility is the dwelling-place of this guardian. He indeed dwells there who said that the Holy Spirit rests on the humble, the peaceful, and the one who fears his words … Humble spouses more easily follow the Lamb than proud virgins.”
