24th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Mt 18, 21-35)
How many families are destroyed in their relationships because of an inheritance, because of jealousy, because of pride, because they think they are better, because they feel despised or indignant, because of some regrettable words, because of the attitude in a moment of anger. That, internally.
Externally, for similar reasons, but with the family against other families or people.
Nevertheless, Jesus commands us to always forgive.
Are we aware when we pray the “Our Father” that we do not have “God’s forgiveness” if we do not forgive others?
Proposal to take care of the family this week:
Let’s review our relationships in the family, and with other families and people. And if there are any shortcomings, let us consider forgiving now.
This week, let’s stop at the words of the “Our Father” that refer to forgiveness. Let’s meditate on them calmly. And let us ask ourselves whether the forgiveness we have given on previous occasions has been truly sincere and heartfelt.
