Unless each of you forgives your brother and sister, the Father will not forgive you.
Lord Jesus, you invite us today to be affectionate and kind toward one another. Thank you for reminding us that our relationship with one another has implications for our relationship with God, the Father. Send us your Holy Spirit that we may be able to extend the mercy, pardon and forgiveness that we receive from God. With your grace may we live an authentic Christian life and spirituality in doing noble deeds towards our brothers and sisters. We ask this of you, Lord, Jesus, who lives and reigns, forever and ever. Amen.
