Faith does not diminish the pain or damage that someone else has inflicted against us. We need God’s help to work through our anger and bitterness, to arrive at the place where forgiveness is possible. We need to do this work. Without it, we will be imprisoned.
-Br. David Vryhof, SSJE
A provocation for your day:
Where in your life do anger and bitterness keep you from forgiveness? Who do you need to forgive, impossible as it may seem?
