Confession – Sunday December 3, 2017 – 9:30 AM
While every one can approach the Holy Mistery of Confession in our church 30 minutes prior to any services. We dedicate first Sunday of each month and offer a preparation for this Holy Mystery through the prayers known as General Confession. Please make sure to be in church at 9:30am.
Saint John Chrysostom had this to say about sin and repentance:
“Do not be ashamed to enter again into the Church. Be ashamed when you sin. Do not be ashamed when you repent. Pay attention to what the devil did to you. These are two things: sin and repentance. Sin is a wound; repentance is a medicine. Just as there are for the body wounds and medicines, so for the soul are sins and repentance. However, sin has the shame and repentance possesses the courage.” – St. John Chrystotom, Homily 8, On Repentance and Almsgiving (Fathers of the Church Patristic Series)
