St. Symeon the New Theologian: Through repentance the filth of our foul actions . . .

Icon of St. Symeon the New Theologian“Through repentance the filth of our foul actions is washed away. After this, we participate in the Holy Spirit, not automatically, but according to the faith, humility and inner disposition of the repentance in which our soul is engaged. For this reason it is good to repent each day as the act of repentance is unending.”
