The gospel or the good news that we are sharing today is beyond the fences of hatred, bitterness and revenge to the abode of forgiveness and love. On the painful, deserted, exilic and suffering cross our savior did not seek for revenge from the father, he did not cry out for fire to burn his enemies but the only thing and the most important thing that led to our transformation is "father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.
It sounds simple and plain but hard and difficult to express such words to your enemies or enemy. We prefer shouting and glamouring for their destruction, termination and disaster. We prefer the father to kill and destroy them and their generations. It sounds good but very opposite to the way our savior wants us to do. He wants us to understand that "our enemies deserve to be forgiven because to Jesus irrespective of the 'evil', they (enemies) do not know what they are doing! No matter their arrogance in penetrating the evil, they do not know what they are doing!
You must forgive to be a good follower of Christ Jesus! May God give you grace to forgive (Amen).
