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.

Saint John Chrysostom

Remember and have no doubt!  The God who can punish us for our sins is also capable in His limitless mercy of absolving us from our sins.  There is no heavy sin or curse that cannot be redeemed by deeds and prayer.

A Quote by Gerontissa Makrina on god, christianity, forgiveness, peace, love, spirituality, freedom, truth, joy, and enlightenment

If you are never angry, always forgiving instantly and constantly blaming yourself knowing you can never be right, you will have heaven on earth and in your heart.  And Christ will help you to do all these things.  You must be like Christ.  You must never love one sister more than another sister, love each sister equally.  If they hurt you or wrong you, love them even more."

Gerontissa Makrina (+1995)

The only justice is to follow the sincere intuition of the soul, angry or gentle. Anger is just, and pity is just, but judgment is never just.
