Friday of the 7th Week of Easter

“Jesus’ forgiveness is the key that releases Peter from his sense of failure and embarrassment and sets Peter on the next chapter of the Christ’s story,” shares Father Jerry in today’s homily video above. “This Easter season may we use the key of forgiveness to free someone and ourselves from the prison of estrangement and division. Let us pray. Or risen Lord, may we center our Easter faith in a commitment to forgiveness that heals, and to reconciliation that enables us to make new beginnings with one another. As Your disciples, may we always seek rebirth, rather than condemnation, and reconciliation before self-righteousness.”
