Forgiving - #OnlineSaints

We are all angry at times, and it is not always wrong: even Jesus knew a holy anger when the house of God was abused (Mk 11:15-18). But God wants to give us peace, so a continued anger is not good.

Moses was a highwayman full of hate and anger. He was forced to find temporary refuge in a monastery. There, he gradually learned that by opening himself to the love of God instead of to his anger, he was able to find peace. Give it a try!

Realise that it is possible to let go of anger and hatred. Let Jesus be part of your life, and pray. Let his peace invade you and make up with God and those you have hurt.
