G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 08.16.12
Forgive, forgive, forgive …
Dear Lord, today’s gospel is about not bearing a grudge.
To dwell on real, or imaginary, wrongs that have been done to us by others is a sure way of making us very unhappy.
Please help us to have open generous hearts ready to acknowledge that we receive your forgiveness, and to look at others with the love with which you look at us.
We ask you to remind us that you have only to be asked and you will forgive us anything—so nothing that anyone does to us is unforgivable.
We pray, dear Lord, that we are conscious of your love and forgiveness in our lives and we are grateful.
Ezekiel 12:1–12. Do not forget the works of the Lord!—Ps 77(78):56–59, 61–62. Matthew 18:21–19:1.
