We are called to strive for freedom from resentments.

Jesus is challenging us to take another road, to cancel the debt that others owe us. He is calling us to forgive because we realize how much we have been forgiven.

This Lent, let us pray for the grace to get out of the torture of bitterness, anger, resentment, and un-forgiveness. Let’s pray for freedom from this torture by being able and willing to let go, to forgive from the heart.
