St. Frances of Rome – 

Why did Jesus go against the conventional religion of his day and stress the importance of forgiving one another? He saw love as the ultimate bond in divine and human relationships. He taught that we cannot love God and hate our neighbor. Forgiveness is important because it clears the way for reestablishing relationships of love. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength. And love your neighbor as yourself.”
