Tuesday, June 23, 2015: Our Lady, Model of Forgiveness

J.M.J. During the last few days, we have seen incredible displays of forgiveness offered to the young man who murdered nine persons in Charleston, South Carolina.

Once again, Pope Francis has taken up the subject of forgiveness. He reminds us that forgiveness for followers of Jesus is obligatory, not optional. 

How Our Lady was given many opportunities to forgive throughout her life, especially regarding those who opposed and murdered her Divine Son. 

Is there any hope for us? Can we increasingly become persons of forgiveness? Yes! Let us imitate Mary's openness to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to stir up within us the grace to forgive--sincerely and unceasingly.
