Forgiveness is a hard, radical teaching of our faith. If you’ve ever been hurt by someone, you know it can be hard to forgive. But, we know it is important because of the words that we pray so often in the Our Father. Essentially they say: Lord, don’t forgive me unless I forgive others. But, if forgiveness is so important we need to know exactly what it is. First of all, forgiveness doesn’t mean that we are not hurt; it doesn’t mean we have to be friends or trust them, and it doesn’t mean that what they did is okay. Forgiveness is a decision that we make. I am reminded of the story in the Gospel where the servant owed the master 10,000 talents, an impossible amount to pay back. The master, however, forgave him the debt. That is what forgiveness looks like. It means knowing that someone owes a huge debt for hurting you but you decide to tell them that they don’t have to pay you back. I know this is hard to do and sometimes takes several attempts, but with God’s grace we can forgive. This forgiveness gives us freedom to move on and quit seeking revenge. Brothers and sisters, forgiveness is hard and radical, but if we want God’s forgiveness we have to forgive others. Let’s pray that with God’s grace we can say to the person who has hurt us: “What you did is wrong, and it hurt, but I forgive you.” --Deacon Jacob Carlin
