Want to Help God Celebrate?

Man’s repentance is God’s celebration.” 

(St. Ephrem the Syrian, in THE HOMILIES, Vol 1, of St. Nikolai Velimirovich, p 99)

 

The Lord Jesus taught us: “I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. . . .  Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”   (Luke 15:7, 10)
