These are the words of the Blessed Mother on this day:
Children of God the Father, the Almighty, I recall for you the beneficial results of forgiveness. I encourage you to be always willing to forgive any and all offences which have caused you hurt and unhappiness.
I ask you to consider seriously what forgiveness is. Forgiveness is easy to receive and sometime difficult to give and often given in words but without sincerity.
Forgiveness is always the manifestation of God’s love. It is given for the good of the offender because the offender is in need of mercy, that mercy which is the love of the Father for the child who has sinned.
Forgiveness, as with all other and many gifts which God the Father, the Almighty makes available to us in abundance, must be used in the full understanding of its value, with sincerity and to honour the divine and perfect love of our Father.
Forgiveness is to be accepted with humility in recognition of our shortcomings. Forgiveness is reciprocated by repentance and repentance leads to salvation.
Therefore children of God the Father, the Almighty, when you forgive an offence you do so with the love of the Christ, who is the presence of God in the human reality. Remember that this is how you forgive even your most determined enemy, with the love which God has for your enemy.
You are free of that enemy when you have forgiven with the love of Jesus or, your mind has been cleared of the suspicion you have harboured against the enemy. Should you forgive in words and not with the love of the Christ for all sinners, then your mind shall not be free of suspicion and your forgiveness becomes an act of hypocrisy.
Similarly, should you ask forgiveness from God the Father, the Almighty, you must do so with all sincerity and repentance and resolve that you shall not offend again.
Remember children of God the Father, the Almighty, that hypocrisy is despised by God the Father, the Almighty. Therefore be honest in your behaviour and do not say I am sincere when you are deceitful, I am generous to the poor when you are not, I am faithful when you are not, I am just when you are not, I love my brothers and sisters when you do not. God knows all about you and is ready to forgive you, always.
She smiles and leaves.
