Masters, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, and Sisters, bless.
As we spring into the Great Fast with the Sunday of Forgiveness. I ask you to forgive me. Also, I wanted to share this simple little snippet from St. Theophan the Recluse (Thoughts for each Day of the Year, St. Herman Press, Platina, CA, 2010, pg. 53).
What a simple and handy means of salvation! Your trespasses are forgiven under the condition that you forgive your neighbor's trespasses against you. This means that you are in your own hands. Force yourself to pass from agitated feelings toward your brother to truly peaceful feelings - and that is all.
- St. Theophan
