The Three Holy Youths teach us. St. John Chrysostom

 

“Would you like to learn words of thanksgiving? Hearken unto the Three Children, saying, ‘We have sinned, we have transgressed. You are righteous, O Lord, in all that you have done unto us because you have brought all things upon us by a true judgment.’ For to confess one’s own sins, this is to give thanks with confessions unto God: a kind of thing which implies one to be guilty of numberless offenses, yet not to have the due penalty exacted. This man most of all is the giver of thanks.”
– St. John Chrysostom
Say like the 3 Holy Children in the furnace
  1. We have sinned.
  2. We have transgressed.
  3. You are righteous, O Lord, in all that you have done unto us because you have brought all things upon us by a true judgment
