repentence

A Quote by Abbot Nikon on god, salvation, enlightenment, repentence, work, freedom, hope, christianity, tomorrow, and life

You have every opportunity, both eternal and external, for repentence and salvation, which is so rare in this day and age.  If you do not take advantage of this now, but keep putting off the work of salvation, you may easily fool yourself.  We cannot be certain that tomorrow belongs to us.  The Lord warns us all: be ready each minute, for you know not what day or what hour they will come for you.

A Quote by Daniel G. Aerakis on home, happiness, guest, heart, joy, life, purification, celebration, repentence, and cleansing

When you are about to have a celebration in your home or to receive an official person, you clean your home with great care and you decorate it.  You especially fix up the living room, where the guest will sit.  So how is it possible to receive in the home of your soul the great Visitor, our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, with out first cleaning the living room of your soul with the broom of sincere repentance, without washing it with tears of contrition?  Adorn your soul, then approach the Holy Cup to receive and welcome the Lord.

A Quote by Mary Oliver on forgiveness, love, purpose, direction, goodness, repentence, body, and self acceptance

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

Mary Oliver
