True Forgiveness ....



We know that we should forgive, and usually we do, but so often we cannot quite let go, still harbouring resentment.  That I the hard part of forgiveness and I a barrier to true reconciliation.  The only way to find true peace is in perfect forgiveness.  It sounds easy but it is not.



In today's First Reading forgiveness is linked to prayer, and prayer is linked to the forgiveness of our own sins.  That I important.  True forgiveness comes from God and only with his help can we get beyond mere words of forgiveness to being able to wipe the offence from our memory.  And this works both ways, as in being forgiven and forgotten our offence.  We move on together, reconciled.


God is good and loving, but he is also just and he will judge u according to our deed.  If we have refused to forgive, he will not be able to forgive us.  He will give u opportunities to come back from anger and hurt and resentment when we have been hurt ourselves by the words or actions of another, but if we cannot fully forgive, then our own fault will remain in his memory.












 


   

 



Let nothing trouble you

let nothing frighten you

everything passes,

God never changes

patience obtains all

whoever has God wants for nothing

God alone is sufficient.
