Reflections on a Saying of a Desert Christian” Abba Poimen

“Another brother asked the same elder whether God easily forgives the sins of man.

“How is it possible for Him not to forgive, my child, He Who teaches man forbearance? Did he not order Peter to forgive one who falls into error even seven times seventy, that is, to infinity?” answered the holy elder.”

This is a Saying of deep comfort. God forgives. Continually. Ad infinitum.

Cherish that. Embrace that. Internalize that. Own that.

God will always forgive.
