Lectionary (Proper 19): Exodus 14:19-31; Psalm 114; Romans 14:1-12; Matthew 18:21-35
En el nombre del Dios: creador, redentor, y santificador. Amen.
“I will forgive you.The words are so small, but there’s a universe hidden in them.When I forgive you, all those cords of resentment, pain, and sadnessthat had wrapped themselves around my heartwill be gone.When I forgive you, you will no longer define me.You measured me, and assessed me,and decided that you could hurt me,that I didn’t count.But I will forgive you because I do count.I do matter.I am bigger than the image you have of me.I am stronger. I am more beautiful.I am infinitely more precious than you thought me.I will forgive you.My forgiveness is not a gift that I am giving to you.When I forgive you,my forgiveness will be a gift that gives itself to me.”
