SINNERS

God hears sinners. But if you are afraid of that which is said in the Scriptures, "We know that God hears not sinners," let fear and belief in this be far from you, for he was blind who said it. Therefore, believe rather Him who said -- and who lies not-- "Though your sins be as scarlet, I will make them white as snow."

If God hears not sinners, what hope do we have? If God hears not sinners, why do we pray, and publish the record of our sin, as did the publican in the temple, by the beating of our breast? Assuredly, God does hear sinners; but He answers those only who call on Him in truth and sincerity of heart and in holiness.

St. Augustine
