St. John Chrysostom

A Quote by St. John Chrysostom on god, christianity, spirituality, healing, forgiveness, shame, evil, truth, and love

Be ashamed when you sin, don't be ashamed when you repent [To repent means to have a change of heart and mind.  It is not simply a feeling of sorrow ,but a psycho/spiritual growth away from evil/death and a turning to God/life].  Sin is the wound, repentance is the medicine.  Sin is followed by shame; repentance is followed by boldness [ Boldness means to beg God for undeserved mercy].  Satan has overturned this order and given boldness to sin and shame to repentance.

A Quote by St. John Chrysostom on god, christianity, healing, miracles, spirituality, love, freedom, hope, and truth

For if you change from inhumanity to alms giving, you have stretched fourth the hand that was withered.  If you withdraw from theaters and go to church, you have cured the lame foot.  If you draw back your eyes from a harlot ... you have opened them when they were blind ... These are the greatest miracles.
