Jesus, my blessed redeemer, in you I have found forgiveness. One of the greatest changes in life is to discover the gift of forgiveness. It is in forgiving others that we open ourselves up to be the beloved of you, Lord. On Calvary’s Cross, you gave us the ultimate meaning of forgiveness. Most of our discord is found to be our blindness to others. We all have shortcomings and are often mistaken. Help us Jesus to be more like you and to love others with sweet abandon. In your beautiful name, I pray. Amen.
