COLUI CHE RUBA I PECCATI Celebrare la misericordia

Translation by Tomasz Szymczak

Ephrem the Syrian, called "the harp of the Holy Spirit," is a Syriac-speaking Church Father and poet who does not hesitate to use all his creative power to recount Christ, His life and His mysteries. He does this also when he celebrates the mercy of the Lord and announces it in his homilies, meditating on it in his commentaries. This small book offers the Italian translation of the Homily on the Sinner and other texts in which Efrem tries to capture all the reflections of the goodness that the Lord showed to this woman and returns them to us through colorful and original images. These pages are populated by the most varied symbols of Christ: the Fisherman who goes out to catch sinners among the drunkards and prostitutes; the Pharmacist who prepares the Medicine of Life in the mortar; the "Thief" who likes to steal sins.
Some passages, finally, seem a real script for a short film. Is there any hope of it winning a film festival award? Try to read it and give your opinion. Be careful, though, as you read: Someone may be stealing your very sins....
