"City of God" IV.21-22

Chapter 21-22:
All other considerations aside, why would you ever pray to any gods besides Virtue and Felicity? After all, if you are virtuous and happy, what more do you need?
Clearly at the end of the day all of these multitude of gods are no gods at all. And the fact that wise writers like Varro can be taken in by them only shows that sin has corrupted even human wisdom.
