For me, forgiveness is so importance. It’s something I struggle with still and in an immediate moment find myself still holding feelings of anger and frustration but mostly I really truly try to let go and forgive people as much as I can. Anger in the right way can be important; however, holding onto it for too long can be really bad for you. As much as possible, I try to let those feelings go. It is something I try to deliberately do. I would encourage you all to do the same. The link with 70x7 is this part from the Bible: “Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
Matthew 18:21-22 ESV
If generosity means giving more than we have to give, then forgiveness can be a deeply generous act. We forgive in the same ways that we’re generous: sacrificially, unconditionally, freely. Take a dive into some (maybe) uncomfortable memories: Who might you need to forgive today? What would it take for you to forgive from a generous place? How can God help you with that?
Easter Triduum Day 2 Good Friday. Good Friday is a mandatory day of fasting and abstinence. This is the day of the crucifixion, the day Jesus died for the sins of the world. The parish altar looks very different on Good Friday, it is plain and bare. There is no consecrated Host in the Tabernacle at the main altar of the church; it was carried away on Holy Thursday night to the “altar of repose” to signify Jesus’ death. The candle by the Tabernacle is blown out, and the Tabernacle doors are left open to show that it is empty. Jesus is gone. This is quite dramatic, highlighting that Good Friday is a solemn day of prayer and mourning. The ceremony on Good Friday is not a Mass, but rather a communion service using the consecrated hosts from Holy Thursday. It often takes place at 3pm, the hour that Jesus breathed his last on the cross. Veneration of the Cross also takes place at this service, processing to kneel before a cross and either touching it or kissing it. Sometimes the priest will begin the service prostrate in front of the altar. *Praying for those bearing a cross today*... For beautiful reflection on Good Friday, have a listen to this hymn. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MPmGcridHQ8 #Goodfriday#lent2019#triduum2019#Eastertriduum#holyweek2019#Catholic#Catholicteachers#vocation#mission#REteachers#Crucifixion#Crucifix#Cross#christian
John 11:25-26. Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?
