Statement of Bishop O'Connell For Sunday Masses

Forgive Us Our Trespasses As We Forgive Those


Today's gospel reading reminds us that we can never tire of forgiveness, since we ourselves are beneficiaries of God's great mercy through the sufferings of His Son. Instead of spending mental energy on calculating how to get even with those who have harmed us, we can surrender the right ot get even in the spirit of what can be eventually become a more thoroughgoing forgiveness.
