Forgiveness is hard work.
And as hard as it is, we often make it even harder because we don’t really understand what it means to forgive—or to be forgiven.
Does it mean that we can’t be angry?
Does it mean that we have to forget?
Does it mean we have to pretend everything is okay?
Can we make amends? Set things right?
In The Forgiveness Book authors Alice Camille & Fr. Paul Boudreau begin by answering those very questions, and then progress in showing the path to the peace and charity that real forgiveness brings—whether it’s seeking forgiveness for our own sins, forgiving someone else, or even learning to accept forgiveness from God and from those we’ve offended.
From scripture we know that forgiveness is not an option. We know that we are going to be forgiven as we forgive. This is serious business if we are to become saints.
