 "The Mass of St. Patrick" given by Fr. Liam Lawton in St. Aidan’s Cathedral on Tuesday 19th September from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. €10 per person to cover costs. All are most welcome.


In this Sunday’s Gospel Peter comes to Jesus and asks a very pertinent question, "Lord, how often must I forgive my brother (or sister) if he wrongs me? As often as seven times?" Jesus answered, "Not seven, I tell you, but seventy seven times." Jesus strongly suggests that we forgive one another as often as there is need. Forgiveness is one of the great human qualities that is seldom practiced but is absolutely essential if we are to sustain and build good relationships with each other. This is especially true in the con-fines of the family. Too often we offend or hurt each other by what we do and say, by taking one another for granted and by offering cold shoulder or sharp face to those we are called to love.

The first reading mentions the side effects of not forgiving and restoring relationships. Resentment and anger may prevail. Vengeance may raise its ugly head and persistent anger may fester to explode again with even greater hurt. Hatred may be the final outcome. "Forgive your neighbour the hurt he does you" is the advice of the author of the first reading and this gives us assurance that our sins too will be forgiven. In the "Our Father" we pray "forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us". Re-member how Jesus forgave those who brought about his death. "Father forgive them; they do not know what they are doing." We should forgive every day and never allow the sun to set on our anger.
