Daily homily thoughts, 3/21

Today the Lord speaks to us of one of his favorite topics: forgiveness.  We must forgive.  Not just seven times, but 77 times.  Not just from our minds, but from our hearts.  There is an old saying that we must forgive, not to excuse another’s behavior but in order that another’s behavior might not destroy our hearts.  It is time to let it go.  Why can we not be better to people?  God’s mercy is unending. So must ours be.
