Forgiveness


#1

Please pray for me to help me forgive someone very close to me. I truly feel betrayed.

God bless,
Ut

I’m relating to that in a big way.

I’ll say a rosary for you, UT. God bless you! :gopray:

The hardest penance I ever received was related to forgiveness. I, too, had been wounded, and was having such a hard time forgiving that it was destroying me. The priest assigned me to pray a Divine Mercy Chaplet, but there was a catch. On each of the beads where a person would ordinarily pray “For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and o the whole world”, I was to say “have mercy on (insert the name of one person who had wounded me) and (insert my own name) and on the whole world.” This was one of the hardest, most humbling experiences of my life. Naming both myself and my wounder on the same bead served a two-fold purpose: first, it put us on the same level as God’s children… Second, it made me ask for mercy on those individuals in the same proportion as I was asking for it for myself. While it was one of the most difficult experiences of my life, it was also one of the most liberating. I still do it occasionally to keep myself in line. Best wishes. And you can be sure I’ll be praying for you…

Thank you all for your prayers. I think they were affective. Things are much better today.

And thank you for the advice about the divine mercy chaplet. I say it every day, so maybe I’ll give it a try. :slight_smile:

God bless,
Ut

Our Father
Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day,
Our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive thows who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Father, please help this person to find forgiveness in their heart. Much in the same way I was forgiven. Please ease their mind and strengthen their love. Amen
