My reflection today:

“ Forgiveness is letting go of the pain and accepting what has happened because it will not change.
Forgiveness is dismissing the blame. Choices were made that caused the hurt; we each could have chosen differently, but we didn’t.
Forgiveness is looking at the pain, learning the lessons it has produced, and understanding what we have learned.
Forgiveness is knowing that love is the answer to our questions and that we all are in someway connected.
Forgiveness is starting over with the knowledge that we have gained.
It is saying: “I forgive you, and I forgive myself, I hope you can do the same.” Judith Mammay

I guess our world needs a lot of forgiveness.
I saw a statue of Jesus that was burned and someone put a sign on it “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.”
We pray in the Our Father :”Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
Lord please help us
