Twenty Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time ‘a’

We all pray daily, saying- ‘… and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.’ But do we truly forgive those who trespass against us? When we go to confession, we simply expect to be absolved, we expect God’s forgiveness. More than that, we promise while there not to sin anymore, but then we go and commit the same sins repeatedly. So, is there a limit to God’s forgiveness? Should God count our sins and one day say -- Stop! That’s enough. I can’t be merciful to you anymore. We know we should forgive others. It is not easy, but this is a Christian way to live. It is not easy, and it is even harder after you forgive once, and the same person hurts you again. So, how many times should we forgive, Peter asks? As many as seven times? Jesus answers, not seven, but seventy-seven times! In other words -- there is no limit of forgiveness, just like God doesn’t limit His forgiveness toward you.
