Prayer of Forgiveness

Dear friends: The love of God is a forgiving, sacrificial love. He loves all and in Him there is no partiality. He has created everyone and everything and in His image and likeness He has created them. The key theme that runs through today’s readings is one of love. In the first reading, David shows how a Christian should respond to the challenge God has given him by not killing the enemy. In the gospel, Jesus speaks about loving their enemies and sincerely praying for their persecutors. He tells them that the reason for this is that the Father in heaven is caring, loving and merciful. He is kind to those who are ungrateful and wicked. Let us pray that we may have the courage and strength to forgive our offenders.
