The Power of Forgiveness in Marriage and Relationships
Pope Francis words on 25th August, 2018
To “forgive” means to “give” something of yourself.
Jesus always forgives us.
By the power of his forgiveness, we too can forgive others, if we really want to.
Isn’t that what we pray for, when we say the Our Father?
Children learn to forgive when they see their parents forgiving one another.
If we understand this, we can appreciate the grandeur of Jesus’ teaching about fidelity in marriage.
Far from a cold legal obligation, it is above all a powerful promise of God’s own fidelity to his word and his unfailing grace.
Christ died for us so that we, in turn, might forgive and be reconciled with one another.
In this way, as individuals and as families, we can know the truth of Saint Paul’s words that, when all else passes away “love never ends”.
