Pope Francis explains the importance of Forgiveness in the family

Pope Francis on 4th November 2015 in his Weekly Catechesis on the family stressed out the great need of Forgiveness amidst one another in a Family.

“Following the recent Assembly of the Synod of Bishops which reflected on the vocation and mission of the family, today we reflect on the importance of the family as the place where we learn the value of forgiveness” Pope Francis said.

The English version of his message reads as follows:

“Each day, in the words of the Our Father, we ask God to forgive us and to grant us the grace to forgive others,” he continued. “As difficult as forgiveness may be, it is essential for our personal growth, our capacity to acknowledge our failures and to mend broken relationships. It is a virtue we learn first in the family.”

“Forgiveness strengthens families in love and, through them, makes society as a whole more loving and humane. It is a solid rock on which to build our lives and an eloquent sign of our Christian discipleship and obedience to the Father’s will. May the coming Jubilee of Mercy encourage families everywhere to rediscover the power of forgiveness, and enable the great family of the Church to proclaim the power of God’s reconciling love at work in our world” Pope Francis added.

    How can you possibly forgive someone who persists doing wrong deeds? He’s done that before, said his sorry, then back again. Like he hasn’t heard us.

    Believe to forgive family members who behaved in an evil way and are greedy is extremely difficult. However, it is more difficult to live a life full of resentment towards those family members for it doesn’t let you enjoy your own life. It doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt. Of course it does! But some way somehow I have discovered through the years that forgiveness liberates you and lifts up your heart. Open your heart and God will take care of you.
