Caesarius of Arles, Sermon 54.5

“What a thing is that, that when those trees to which people make vows fall, no one carries the wood from them home to use on the hearth! Behold the wretchedness and stupidity of mankind: they show honor to a dead tree and despise the commands of the living god; they do not dare to put the branches of a tree into the fire and by an act of sacrilege throw themselves headlong into hell.” – Caesarius of Arles, Sermon 54.5
