Thought of the week
“Forgive us our trespasses, as we also forgive those who trespass against us.” Mt. 6.12
What to do before an offense. Remain attached to evil or forgive in order to be rid of it? In the prayer of Our Father the solution we suggest is to forgive, because we ourselves are in need of God’s forgiveness. Do not forgive it’s a bit like drinking poison and believe that it will hurt someone else. Even if the offense is considerable, forgiveness is the best choice. One frees oneself first and frees those who committed this evil. Forgiveness is never easy. Let us ask God for strength to do the right choice.
Have a Good week.
