Forgive Them

Those who work evil

Are working in the dark

Because they have not

Stepped into the light

And cannot see

What they are doing

 

Luke 23:34

“Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”

  1. Forgiveness….a gift to the receiver, and a blessing of great proportion to the giver! If only we could all learn to TRULY forgive, sending forth our love with no thought of recompense for ourselves, we would become like Christ.

  2. Right after I read your post and added my comment, I started to read my daily reflections. This was the first one I read:
    “Have you found me out, my enemy?” —1 Kings 21:20

    May our enemies find us out, that is, find out that we genuinely love them in truth. May our enemies find us out, that is, find out that we are praying and fasting for them, and offering Masses and sacrifices for them. May our enemies find us out, finding that we have no hatred in our hearts for them, but only true love (Mt 5:44ff).

    May our enemies find us out, that is, find out that after we have suffered loss and pain as a result of their hatred, and despite our wounds suffered through their efforts, discover that we actually love them with a true, supernatural love. May our enemies find us at the foot of the cross, laying down our pain at Jesus’ feet and receiving in turn Jesus’ love for them.

    In finding us out, may our enemies also find Jesus out. May they find out how deeply Jesus loves them. May they find God out — so deeply that they come to receive eternal life, salvation, and eternal joy in heaven with God — and with us — forever. “Love your enemies” (Mt 5:44).
