Just as we wish for God to love us, to forgive us, to overlook our errors, to watch over us and protect us with His providence, so we should extend the same to other people.

Forgiveness doesn’t require effort, it isn’t difficult. What does it need? It needs humility.

 By forgiving another person we’ll be given forgiveness for our own countless sins and we’ll have every right to say to God: ‘What people did to me, I forgave with all my heart and love, in accordance with Your Gospel, and Your Word.

Now I’m asking You to express Your love for me and to forgive me my own sins.
