Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 13 September 2020
Sirach 27:30–28:7. Psalm 103:1-2, 3-4, 9-10, 11-12. Romans 14:7-9. Matthew 18:21-35.
Seventy-Seven Times. When is enough enough? Can we be angry now? When can we stop forgiving? If we have to forgive the same person the same thing seventy-seven times, can we stop at seventy-eight? No! Because, as Paul declares in Romans 14, we live and die for God, to whom alone we belong. We do not live for ourselves.
- Who needs my forgiveness?
- Whom will I forgive – and for what – perhaps, again?
- And what forgiveness do I need?
