24th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Originally delivered on September 16, 1990
Readings: Sirach 27: 30-28:7; Romans 14: 7-9; Matthew 18: 21-35
Today’s Gospel challenge to us is to forgive, just as Jesus always forgives us. We must remember that God came in the form of His son, Jesus, and although he was crucified, in his dying breath, He said, “Father forgive them…” May we be reminded of this example and forgive as Jesus forgives. This doesn’t mean to forget, but rather to remember and still forgive.
