Gospel Alive #2 - How many times should I forgive?

Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time - 17 September 2017
Do you still remember what was last Sunday's gospel reading? 


It was basically about our friend St. Peter asking Jesus on our behalf for some exam tips eh, I mean spiritual Christian life tips to go to heaven.... Seven times cukup ah Brother?.. can la..
Then Jesus say... sorry brother, tak cukup la.. Must be 70x7 times.
Huh.. means 70x7= 490 times ah for each person? means what? How la liddat?  Haiyo.. want to forgive 1 time also so susah d. 70 times 7 means like forever la kena forgive.

Then Jesus cerita a parable to make us faham sikit and to lessen our sakit hati. Forgiving people who have hurt or wronged us is not easy. We feel tempted to give them the hand




God has forgiven our biggest debts when He died for us on the cross.

However, despite what God has done for us, when our brother owes us stuff, we jump left right and centre with foam in our mouths



What Jesus is saying to us today is... 

" Forgiveness is two ways. When we forgive, we LIBERATE the other person and then we become HEALED"Fr Marie, Sunday Homily, Assumption PJ.
