Rabbi Meir used to say, Great is repentance, for on account of an individual who repents, the sins of all the world are forgiven. (Yoma 86b)
That same page tells us (in the name of Reish Lakish) that for those who repent out of love, intentional sins are counted as merits.
For those of you who are fasting, have an easy fast. For all the Yidden out there, have a good, hard, serious, redemptive Yom Kippur, and I’ll see you all on the other side.
