Hospital for the Sinners

 

In the Sunday sermon of Zacchaios, Fr. Lazarakis speaks of redemption. Saint John Chrysostom says that “the church is not a museum for the saints but a hospital for sinners.” Like Zacchaios, a thief and traitor, all of the saints were sinners. No one’s sins are so bad that they cannot be overpowered by God. No sin is more powerful that God’s love. Watch and listen as we learn more about redemption.

Sermon given: January 31, 2016
