St. Flora of Beaulieu
Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples." He said to them, "When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread and forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test" (Luke 11: 1-4).
Whenever we pray the Our Father we are telling God that we will forgive everyone that offends us. Do you sincerely do that? Is there someone you have not forgiven? If we remember all of the times that God has forgiven us it is much easier to forgive others for the few things they do to us.
Jesus, please give me the strength to always forgive.
