From St. Herman
"A true Christian is made by faith and love toward Christ. Our sins do not in the least hinder our Christianity, according to the word of the Saviour Himself. He deigned to say: 'I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance; there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.' "
