After you’ve sinned, do not flee…

If you sin, do not flee from God, but stand before Him and tell Him frankly of your embarrassment and shame, and tell Him that you are afraid. Be like the tax collector who was disturbed by his sins, yet did not flee, but came with all his sins to God and stood before Him in fear and embarrassment, unable to lift up his eyes, he stood afar beating his breast and cried out to God saying, ‘God have
mercy on me, a sinner!’

~ HH Pope Shenouda III of Alexandria
