GUIDING US IN THE WAYS OF
FORGIVENESS AND CHARITY
 
Those three little words, “I am sorry,” are just as significant and essential in a relationship as those other three little words, “I love you.”  
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
How many of us read book after book or attend lectures, retreats, and workshops with the thought that this author, this story, or that technique will finally provide the spiritual breakthrough we seek? This time, we hope, we will finally “get it.” Even though I am the director of a retreat house, and know that taking a pause out of life is important, it’s much needed. No program or series of steps, though, can give us the deep faith we desire. We may draw inspiration from the experiences and insights of others, but ultimately if it is to be our faith - one that is living, changing, growing, deepening, bring new horizons, then it must come from within. Jesus knew that!
 
In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells His disciples about something that must come from within. “If your brother or sister wrongs you seven times in one day and returns to you seven times saying, “I am sorry,’ you should forgive him or her.” Those three little words, “I am sorry,” are just as significant and essential in a relationship as those other three little words, “I love you.”
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Jesus Christ adds a most important reason for us to always say, “I am sorry,” If you forgive others their transgressions, your heavenly Father will forgive you.” We pray in today’s Responsorial Psalm: Your hand shall guide me and your right hand hold me fast, in the ways of forgiveness and charity.
