Spiritual tears and a certain joy of heart

Spiritual tears and a certain joy of heart

The nearer a man is to God, the more he feels that he is a sinner, one of the Fathers has said, because only God’s holiness makes our sinfulness truly visible. Hence tears are not only found at the beginning of the spiritual path of conversion, but also accompany the penitent as far as his goal, where they are then transformed into “spiritual tears and a certain joy of heart”, which the Fathers esteemed as a sign of the immediate action of the Holy Spirit and thus of nearness to God. ( Earthen Vessels )
