Do you recognise these lines ?

"Forgive them, for they know not what they do."
'Heard you that, Paulus? He, a heathen and an idolator, said it!'

'I heard. What hinders now that we should baptize him?' Paulus answered promptly.

Petrus stared at him as though he had come up out of the sea...
'Quiet!' said he. 'Think you that one who has spoken Those Words needs such as we are to certify him to any God?'
