By Tatyana Shvetsova


"Do not you grieve of things transitory, for there is not one thing that you need to grieve inconsolably for. One need not grieve not only for transitory things, but over the greatest of sins before God. For even if your sin is greater than any other sin, still you need not despair and sink into inconsolable grief, for there is no sin that conquers the all-victorious mercy of our Lord. Our sins cannot compare with the vastness of the Lord's generosity. God will save us with His merciful gift of forgiveness.
