It is hard to forgive and forget when we have had a serious wrong done to us. The
scripture word today asks a lot from us. It really asks us to be like the Lord who is
compassion and love, slow to anger and rich in mercy. The Christian community must
be seen to be one of forgiveness and mercy. At this Mass we continue the work of
reconciliation. The sign of peace before Communion is our prayer gesture of
Mass in Killamoat Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning at 9.30.
