Metanoia (Greek μετάνοια) means a "change of heart," or, more literally, "after perception," tying it closely to the idea of repentance.
- "[Metanoia] involves, that is, not mere regret of past evil but a recognition by man of a darkened vision of his own condition, in which sin, by separating him from God, has reduced him to a divided, autonomous existence, depriving him of both his natural glory and freedom." —
