Remembering 9/11/2001: Have we started to Forgive?

When I think back, I remember my shock, despair and fear for the USA.  10 years later I pray for those that lost their lives, those that lost family and friends and those that have not been able fo find forgiveness.  Today's mass was all about forgiveness.

In our bulletin the following was printed.  It was submitted by Bud Ozar.

"Unable to forgive another, means we are holding onto a past wrong and hoping for a better past.  That is not going to happen.  We must move on with our life by accepting we were unjustly treated and it will not be corrected.  We aren't condoing the injustice.  We just don't let it control our lives any longer.  Forgiveness is critical to living a healthy life in the present."

I hope I have taken steps to forgive those that planned and executed the attacks on America.

Excellent question. Forgiveness is so hard, yet so very necessary. Beautiful quilt.
