I led the second forgiveness class today. One of the participants lost a spouse to a driver on drugs and wonders now how to forgive. How indeed. In the afternoon I started work on Sunday’s sermon, using Mark 10:46-52. I came across this today in Sirach: “Humility deserves honor and respect, but a low opinion of yourself leads to sin. Do not let others have their way at your expense; do not bring on your own ruin by giving up your rights. Never hesitate to speak out when the occasion calls for it. Don’t hide your wisdom.” (4:21-23) I tend to hide my wisdom, but I have none for the one who struggles to forgive a terrible sin. Pray for the grace to forgive.
