As we continue our Lenten journey let us be hopeful and look with anticipation to the Passion of Easter when Jesus did and resurrected from the dead for the forgiveness of our sins. We remember how Jesus forgave those who crucified him on the cross with those words, Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up clothes by casting lots”. Luke 23:34. How timely it is for us all to model the virtue of forgiveness after Jesus, not only because we recognize the Holy season of Lent but also because it is an important foundation of our faith and one that Jesus modeled for us in his life and death. We are reminded that forgiveness is an important foundation of our faith and a gift to ourselves as we let go of the burden of resentment when we forgive another person. 

The Canadian Samaritan for Africa President and Board of Trustees wish our beloved readers a Happy and Blessed Easter season.
