    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    Under a geocentric model, in order of distance:

    Sun (day)
    Mo(o)n (day)
    (Tuesday)
    (Wednesday)
    (Thursday)
    (Friday)
    Satur(n) (day)
