On the Importance of Mourning for Sin

St. John Climacus ca. 579-649

When we die, we will not be criticized for having failed to work miracles. We will not be accused of having failed to be theologians or contemplatives. But we will certainly have some explanation to offer to God for not having mourned unceasingly. (The Ladder of Divine Ascent, Step 7: On Mourning)
