In the gospels both John the Baptist and Jesus call us to embrace a metanoia.  That Greek word means a complete change of mind and heart.  So it’s not simply a regretting of sins; it’s a complete restoration of one’s life.  And that “turning over a new leaf” can be both profoundly freeing and profoundly joyful!  You can say to yourself, “I don’t have to live like this any longer!”  And, “I can live in the freedom that God calls me to!”  In this way of seeing it, metanoia can be a relief.

You can pray for a metanoia by asking God to make you aware of the parts of your life where you are not only sinful but unfree.  You can pray that God gives you the grace to see these things; that you can indeed make amends; and, most important, that you can find the freedom to live in a new way (James Martin, SJ).
