Forgiveness is the topic of the day. A nice word. A great gesture. What we are called to do? But also what can be so overwhelming to truly accomplish.
September 11, 2001 is a day we cannot forget. It is a day that congers up feelings of retaliation and hate. It is a day that truly challenges us in forgiveness! How can we forgive? How can we let go? In the human realm, we cannot. But in the spiritual realm we can.
As people of faith, we are called to a higher existence. Just like Jesus forgave those who nailed Him to that cross, we are asked to forgive others. It is only in this way that can we move on with our lives, feel peace, and bring a world together without prejudice, racism or retaliation.
Peace be with you!
