It cuts his head off

17 July 2022

Repentance, which seems dreadful and horrific to sinners, heals transgressions, does away with iniquities, stops tears, gives boldness towards God, is a weapon against the devil, a sword that cuts off his head, a hope of salvation, and the elimination of despair. It opens up heaven to us. It leads us to paradise. It vanquishes the devil.

Saint John Chrysostom
