3rd Sunday of Easter After an intense disagreement or argument, it can be very difficult to get back to normal, especially when ugly things were said, or nasty comments were made. Even when we know it was done out of anger or frustration, the hurt can linger and hold us back from reconciling. Is it necessary to forgive and forget? Just how do you move on after being hurt? It is easy to forgive, but very difficult to forget. When we forgive someone, we are looking beyond the offense to acknowledge the value and worth of the offender. Jesus did the same for us. While we yet sinners, He died for us. He saw and knew our worth in the sight of God. He did not forget our sin. He knew it well. Forgetting is not a component of forgiving. Sometimes we just move on. We focus on the positive things in our relationship, in our family and in our lives. We do not dwell on the past, but rather move forward by loving others as we should. Grace and virtue, particularly faith, hope and love, have a healing power that makes us whole. We feel not only the destructive power of sin in our life, but also the restorative power of grace. So, forgive others as God forgives you and then move on and let grace do the rest. ~James Gaffney, St. George Publishing

April 15 ~ Third Sunday of Easter Jesus asks the disciples in today’s gospel, and he asks us, "Why are you troubled?” We may want to respond, “Don’t you see the terrible things happening in our world?” Jesus responds to his disciples of every age, that suffering and hardship did not destroy him, nor will it destroy us. That means that as his disciples, we are not meant to stay in the upper room – that place of fear and confusion. Rather Jesus sends his disciples out into the world. Take with you today the message of Easter joy, the message that is for all people. 5
