TODAY’S WORD…

“Lord, if my brother keeps on sinning against me,

how many times do I have to forgive him? Seven times?”

.

Jesus answered,

“No, not seven times,

but seventy times seven.”

.

– Matthew 18:21-22 (GNT)

QUOTE…

.

“Force yourself, if necessary,

always to forgive those who offend you,

from the very first moment.

For the greatest injury or offense that you can suffer from them

is nothing compared to what God has pardoned you”

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

.

PRAYER…

.

My Lord Jesus, You are love and forgiveness personified.

We crucified You, yet You forgave us.

.

Jesus, I beg you with all my heart,

never permit my stubbornness and pride

to take over and convince me that I may be somehow justified

if I go against Your teachings and insist on not forgiving.

.

Lord, help me look at You on the Cross,

and learn from You,

and be more like You.

.

For this I pray. Amen

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

Jesus, You forgive me every time – please make me more like You.
