And whenever you stand in prayer, forgive whatever grievance you have against anybody, so that you Father in heaven may forgive your wrongs too. – Mk 11:25

Reflection. Forgiveness bears good fruit, and certainly banishes resentment, the enemy of joy.  When resentment and guilt are dropped, things being to happen — both to the forgiver and to the forgiven.  It is like opening a dam and letting the water flow.  Power is released.

Prayer. Holy Spirit, soul of my soul, help me to forgive everyone who has ever hurt me.  Liberate me from my resentment and from my hurt that I may have life, and life in abundance.
