In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus tells his followers the parable of the king who decides to settle his accounts. The message in the parable is that of forgiveness. Just as we are forgiven by the Father, so too should we forgive others. Forgiveness allows us to restore broken relationships and let go of resentment. Forgiveness frees us to love and live joyfully.
Jesus, you forgave those who tormented you.
Teach us to forgive.
