(Reflection on Sunday
"Lord, how often shall I forgive my brother?"
"Does mercy overlook justice? Justice demands that everyone
be given their due. So when is it right to show mercy and pardon to
those who have acted unjustly or wrongly? The prophet Amos speaks of
God forgiving transgression three times, but warns that God may not
revoke punishment for the fourth (see Amos 1:3-13; 2:1-6). When
Peter posed the question of forgiveness, he characteristically
offered an answer he thought Jesus would be pleased with. Why not
forgive seven times! How unthinkable for Jesus to counter with the
proposition that one must forgive seventy times that."
