A break in today's snow.
What a terrifying prayer: "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." Just how terrible was underlined for me today in a passage from the Book of Sirach (28:2-5) quoted in Give Us This Day: Daily Prayer for Today's Catholic:
Forgive your neighbor the wrong done to you;
then when you pray, your own sins will be forgiven.
Does anyone nourish anger against another,
and expect healing from the Lord?
