Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Forgiveness” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds His disciples always to forgive those who have wronged us. Jesus added that even if our faith is the “size of a mustard seed,” God will never fail to give us the strength and wisdom to live His Will, of bringing reconciliation, unity and peace in relationships and in families.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Obstacles are sure to come, but alas for the one who provides them! It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone round the neck than that he should lead astray a single one of these little ones. Watch yourselves!
‘If your brother does something wrong, reprove him and, if he is sorry, forgive him. And if he wrongs you seven times a day and seven times comes back to you and says, “I am sorry,” you must forgive him.’
The apostles said to the Lord, ‘Increase our faith.’ The Lord replied, ‘Were your faith the size of a mustard seed you could say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea,” and it would obey you.’
