FEAR NOT, FOR I AM WITH YOU
But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob
And He who formed you, O Israel:
" Fear not, for I have redeemed you;

The Life of Repentance and Purity
His Holiness Pope Shenouda III
Repentance, my brethren, is not only for those beginning their life with God, but is for everyone, even the saints. It is part of our daily prayers. Every person needs
repentance, no matter how great his position or his spiritual level. We are all in need of repentance, in need of it everyday, since we sin everyday. For there is no person without sin, even if his life was one day on earth. With repentance, we prepare our hearts for the dwelling of God, and with purity, we will see God (Matt 5:8). Repentance is the beginning of the path towards God, it is a friend along the path till the end.
