As a monk, I myself, although I am an ordinary, simple sort of man, found this harshness and blasphemy of denying love the hardest thing to bear. Nor could I ever persuade myself to believe with any peace of mind that this monastic obedience, which was against love and so offensively harsh, was what is right and proper.” Martin Luther, Judgment of Martin Luther on Monastic Vows, LW, AE, 44:329-330
