There is nothing hidden / ??? ?????? ????????????

St. Theophan the Recluse. Thoughts for every day of the year

Translated from the Russian text below. Corrections are welcome.

(Rom 8:22-27; Mt 10:23-31). “There is nothing hidden, that shall not be revealed; nothing secret, that shall not be made known”. It follows that no matter how much we hide our sins now, it will be of no use in the end. The time will come — and is it far away? — when everything will be made known. So what should we do? There is no need to hide anything. If you have sinned, go and disclose your sin to your spiritual father. When you receive absolution, the sin vanishes, as if it never existed. After that, nothing will ever be revealed or disclosed. But if you hide your sin and don’t repent, then you are storing it up within yourself, so that it may be revealed as your accuser in due time. God has revealed all of this to us in advance, so that we may even now eliminate the accusation against us sinners at His righteous and fearful judgment.
