Homily from the Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Forgiveness is a decision.

One of the most difficult commands that Jesus has called us to is that we must forgive those who have hurt us and who have hurt those we love. Loving like this is difficult. It is truly tough love that is willing to weigh up the hurt and release the offender from the debt that they owe.
