Are You Struggling to Forgive Someone?

We hear a lot about forgiveness in the Gospels.

Jesus told us that we must forgive our brother not seven times, but seventy times seven—that is, every time.

But most of the time, we have difficulty forgiving people. Especially when it comes to the deepest hurts—like those inflicted by family and friends—or those offenses which are repeated or for which we receive no apology.

How can we forgive others not just when it’s easy, but when it’s really hard? How can we make forgiveness more than a lofty ideal?

And how do we put it into practice?

Experience the Freedom of Forgiveness

In the Our Father, we say: “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.”

Learning how to forgive is therefore not just praiseworthy—it’s necessary for our salvation.

If we fully embrace the call to forgive and truly practice it in our lives, we will experience an unbelievable freedom of soul, mind, and even body.

  • We will be unchained from past hurts and move forward, assisted by the grace and mercy of God.
  • We will be able to live out Christ’s command to love our enemies and do good to those that hate us.
  • We will no longer be slaves to our wounds, but free.
