HOLY CONFESSION OF YOUR HEART

Be ashamed when you sin, not when you repent

Saint John Chrysostom (Golden-mouthed)

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.

HOLY CONFESSION OF YOUR HEART

After the sin comes the shame; courage follows repentance

Saint John Chrysostom (Golden-mouthed)

Pay attention carefully. After the sin comes the shame; courage follows repentance. Did you pay attention to what I said? Satan upsets the order; he gives the courage to sin and the shame to repentance.
