Five pages of a handwritten sermon, dated January 23, 1944 and titled "The Madness of Sin" that quotes the Biblical text Luke 15:17. The sermon asserts that sinners minimize the graveness of their sins because they are deluded; they also undervalue and neglect their souls. Next, the sermon equates sin and madness by emphasizing that both sinners and madmen are reckless, stubborn, lack self-awareness, and pose a danger to others. The sermon ends with a reference to the parable of the prodigal son.
