Thursday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time ‘a’

How many times have you gone to confession? Or how many times have you repeated the words: “I confess to you, Almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sisters…” before each Mass? Countless times! And we will continue to confess our sins and we will constantly ask God to forgive us until the end of our lives. Why? Because we will never stop sinning; there will always be something for which we would like to be forgiven. And guess what -- God always forgives us! His mercy never ends. Even when you make promises that you would never sin again, but eventually you commit the same sin, God still forgives you when you ask for it. But God’s forgiveness comes with one condition: just like Him, we are called to forgive those who hurt us and not just once, not twice, not ten times, but all the time. God forgives all the time, so we should not put a limit to our forgiveness toward others. “Peter approached Jesus and asked him, ‘Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.’”
