For some of us, forgiveness comes easy. For many others, forgiveness holds us back from true  happiness. An interesting point of reference as we pray the Our Father, we are asking God to forgive us as we forgive others. If our forgiveness, then, is puny and withholding, we are in essence saying that it is ok for God to be just as ungenerous with us. That’s a frightening thought! Rather, let us pray that our hearts will expand and be as generous as God as we detach and let go of the stockpile of hurts we have endured.
