Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time –
“They will know we are Christians by our love.” We know what it is like to be set free from our sins because we have been so generously forgiven in the Sacrament of Reconciliation many times over. And God gives us the ability to grant the same to others. It is not easy letting go of the past, but it gives us the opportunity to move joyfully into the future. That which sets us apart is that we have the capacity to forgive others as Jesus has forgiven us.
