A Penitent Blogger

Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Forgiveness in Lent

Lent is a time of repentance and of seeking forgiveness from God.

Today’s Gospel (Matthew 18:21-35) gives us a frightening reminder that Lent is a time to be extending forgiveness to each other.

Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers
until he should pay back the whole debt.

So will my heavenly Father do to you,
unless each of you forgives your brother from your heart.

May we forgive.

And may God have mercy on us all.
