Caesarius of Arles, Sermon 13.5

“There are unhappy wretches who neither fear nor blush to perform dances and vaults before the basilicas of the saints themselves and who, if they are Christians when they come to church are Pagans when they leave it, for this custom of dancing is left over from Pagan custom. And now see what kind of Christian he is, who had come to church to pray, forgets prayer and does not blush to mouth the sacrileges of the Pagans. But just consider, brothers, whether it is right that lewd song should flow like poison from lips which Christ’s body entered.” – Caesarius of Arles, Sermon 13.5
