Sin: "as the leech sticks to the skin ..."

I write in Chapter 3 that "sin oozes, [it] creeps...", but this is even better (quoted in a forthcoming publication of CICW):

The Zaire rite offers its prayer of confession this way: “Lord our God, as the leech sticks to the skin and sucks human blood, evil has invaded us. . . Who will save us, if not you, our Lord?”
