“The profane sounds ugly, as it should. The profane is that which intentionally dismisses, ridicules, or destroys the sacred. Standing up to the profane means that we notice what breaks the heart of God and that we resist it. To put it another way, a nose for the profane sniffs out what smells to high heaven.”[i]—Gregory Spencer, Awakening the Quieter Virtues
