the postponement of a matter from one day to another; according to the maxim of the lazy and of the men of pleasure, "Seria in crastinum (diem or tempus)." Generally, in such cases, time wears on, and things are not done, at least not in the right time or in the right way: "Cras, eras et semper eras, et sic dilabitur setas." The system of procrastination, therefore, is to be commended in no respect; but least of all in moral, or, better, religious matters. Every day lost in our moral amendment is an irreparable loss, a loss for eternity, as reformation becomes the more difficult the more it is delayed.
