“St.Augustine says ‘God gives where He finds empty hands’. A man whose hands are full of parcels can’t receive a gift. To condone an evil is simply to ignore it, to treat it as if it were good. But forgiveness needs to be accepted as well as offered if it is to be complete: and a man who admits no guilt can accept no forgiveness” CS Lewis

Repentance is the doorway to Grace. In the words of CS Lewis repentence is not something God arbitrarily demands of us instead it is simplya description of what going back is like. It opens the way to the future in a restored relationship with God.

“If you but love God you may do as you incline” Augustine

Love what God loves

Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’ Matthew 22:37-39
