Forgiveness is very much a Lenten theme. In order to forgive others, we must be able to forgive ourselves. How often are we consumed by guilt over such trivial things that we become weighed down by the guilt and can no longer shine the light of Christ from within.
It is good to reflect on what has already been – not to feel even more depressed or embarrassed but in order to learn from our mistakes and sinful ways and to grow in love for God and each other.
Lord, you search me and you know me. I place myself completely in your loving and merciful care, that I may walk in the light of faith.
