People today need to turn to
Christ once again in order to
receive from him the answer to
their questions about what is
good and what is evil. Christ is the
teacher who is always present in
his church and in the world.

Healing our Hearts through Forgiveness

~ Henri Nouwen
How can we forgive those who do not want to be forgiven?
Our deepest desire is that the forgiveness we offer will be
received. This mutuality between giving and receiving is what
creates peace and harmony. But if our condition for giving
forgiveness is that it will be received, we seldom will forgive!
Forgiving the other is first and foremost an inner movement.
It is an act that removes anger, bitterness, and the desire for
revenge from our hearts and helps us to reclaim our human
dignity. We cannot force those we want to forgive into
accepting our forgiveness. They might not be able or willing
do so. They may not even know or feel that they have
wounded us.
The only people we can really change are ourselves. Forgiving
others is first and foremost healing our own hearts.
