      Fr. Foeckler gave us a lecture regarding mercy and forgiveness.

      How did Jesus treat people?

      How did Jesus act towards people?

      Jesus suffered and died for them.

      A woman who committed adultery was to be stoned to death, and Jesus
      responded with “whoever 

      has no sin may throw the first stone”. All of the
      people knew they were also sinners, so they dropped their stones and left.

      Jesus showed mercy to sinners.

      means forgiveness, not demanding punishment. Mercy brings PEACE.


      21 Then Peter went up to him and said, ‘Lord, how
      often must I forgive my brother if he wrongs me? As often as seven 

      times?’ 22 Jesus
      answered, ‘Not seven, I tell you, but seventy-seven times.      

      Matthew 18:21-22

      Jesus is not
      telling us to forgive our brothers 490 times. He is telling us we should
      always forgive 

      our brothers when they
      sin against us.

      Jesus always tells
      us, “Give and you will receive”; one of his most significant paradoxes, and 

      alteration  o
      f the forgiveness of sins statement.

      Every time you
      feel offended, be ready to forgive.

      “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass
      against us”

      in Our Father
      Prayer which Jesus taught to his disciples.


      33 Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just
      as I had on you?

      Matthew 18:33


       Jesus has two conditions for forgiveness from

      You have to ask for it! You have to want it… 

      – God is always ready and willing to forgive through

      You ALWAYS have to forgive others!

      What if the people never ask God or
      they don’t care about sins or they don’t have conscious?

      Blessed Mary asked us to pray for:

      of poor sinners
      We ask for them the mercy and we have to pray for

      of sins
      “to make up for; to repair; to fix”

      Starts with thy own sins

      For others’ sins (good people & bad people)

      When Jesus
      died on the cross, he was mostly surrounded by enemies. 

      However, he asked God
      to forgive 
      all of their sins.

      When sin is “erased”,
      the Life of God spreads, and peace is present.

      We will have
