Repentance: Two Types of Courage

Nikolai Velimirovich on repentance (from Prayers by the Lake)

Repentance is admission of the way of sin. Repentance opens up a new way. The penitent’s eyes are open to two ways: to the way which he is going, and to the way he should be going.

There are more who feel repentant than there are who turn their wheels onto a new way. I tell you: the penitent must have two types of courage–he must have the courage to weep over his old way, and he must have the courage to prepare himself for a new way.
