Tuesday of the 3rd week of Lent

Daniel 3:25,34-43; Psalm 24(25):4-6,7a-9; Matthew 18:21-35

Any community built on Love, will find that forgiveness is key to that Love. The parable uses outrageous sums of money - 10,000 Talents would make the UK's GDP look trivial - to show how important it is that we forgive each other.

It does not mean that forgiveness is easy - we know that it is not. But it is essential, otherwise we are going to be judged by the standard of forgiveness that we can muster. We have the opportunity every Mass during the penitential rite. We ask each of our neighbours to pray for our forgiveness, and we depend upon each other to do so.
