St. Theophan: Thoughts: June 1/ June 14

(Rom. 8:22-27; Matt. 10:23-31) “…there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.” Consequently, as we hide ourselves with our sins there is no profit. The time approaches – is it long in coming? and everything will come into the open. How will we be? It is not necessary to hide. You sinned – go and reveal the sin to your spiritual father. When you receive absolution the sin disappears as if it had never been. If you hide your sin and don’t repent and keep it in yourself it will be revealed in it’s own time as your denunciation. Everything, first of all, is revealed to us by God, in order that we can now manage to disable His righteous and terrible judgement on us sinners.
