Exploring this theme through the consideration of the early Church, the father of the prodigal son, the sacrifice of Jesus and more, Fr. Anthony Coniaris guides us to a fuller understanding of God's Makrothymia - His long suffering love. Recognizing that our sin is what separates us from God, we are called to accept our responsibility in creating this distance. In this context we come to appreciate God's great mercy, for we as sinners are, "in the hands of a God Who, with open arms, pines as he longs for their return." Page 94.
