It feels the betrayal

16 December 2017

Breaking the commandment brought about the fall, which is our separation from God and everything to do with Him. God accepted our repentance, return and submission to Him once He’d repaired our relationship through His own love and holiness. According to the Fathers, the most acceptable form of repentance is hot tears which well up by themselves from the pain of a heart which feels its repellent guilt and its betrayal of God’s paternal love.
