“Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray even more, until you feel the holiness of forgiveness in your heart. There must be holiness in the families, little children, because there is no future for the world without love and holiness – because in holiness and joy, you give yourselves to God the Creator who loves you with immeasurable love. This is why He sends me to you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

The holiness of forgiveness.

The holy forgiveness:
Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they casted lots upon his vestures.

Forgiveness can be likened to working through a daily “to do” list.

And there are always some “things to do” that can convenienly get pushed back to another time or even forgotten about in busy lives –– perhaps too painful to confront at the time they are added to the list.

Hurt pride and the question “Why should I” are common stumbling blocks on the path to forgiveness.

I have a daily prayer: “Dear Lord, hold nothing against any soul on my account. I forgive.”

And then sometimes, not suprisingly, I am prompted or reminded of someone I have not truly forgiven in the past and to reflect on the circumstances.

Forgiving is a hard job.
Includes both parties.
Forgiveness without a
real and true reason is
that forgiveness?
Did Jesus forgive the
mockers and the crucifiers
himself?
"they know not what they do!"
Is that a good reason?
Not so, unless you know
why they did it and you
yourself know something extra.
"Father, forgive them!"
Did Jesus Himself forgive them?
Maybe not.
Why would He forgive the
ones who killed him?
It doesn;t matter for them
if Jesus forgives them?
Is that not pointless?
Jesus forgiving them?
To whom would it make
sense, that Jesus forgives
them.
Isn't all that matters for
them that the Father
forgives them?
Forgiveness of the Father
that would be good for
the crucifiers.
Would Jesus forgiving
them, be good for Jesus
himself.
When do you really forgive?
Once you found a good
reason to forgive?
When is it that you just
stick your head in the sand
and start ignoring the
situation?
And is that good for you?
Is that then good for the offender?
What is it that you ignored?
What is it that the offender
did not tell you?
Therefore it is still valid.
Go have a walk with the offender.
Climb a mountain and talk.
Who knows you start to
understand more.
Then comes the forgiveness.
Jesus had no such moment with
the crucifiers and mockers.
Therefore he did not forgive,
but asked the Father to forgive
them. Because the Father
already knows why he would
forgive them.
Forgiving them without the
moment of finding each other
is that not hypocrisy?
Later he may have His moment
with the mockers.
And then forgive?
Or not?
is not forgiving an option?
In the end I think it might.
prayers for my husband please.

Good Morning Beloved, Thank you so much for your b[…]

Wow. Amen
