Forgiveness

"The number of people who have fled the church because it is too patient or compassionate is negligible; the number who have fled because they find it too unforgiving is tragic." (Brennan Manning) God, help us love one another (John 13:34).

 

Just read this quote from Mother Teresa. “May God break my heart so completely that the whole world falls in.” Please, Jesus.

"It's the hardest thing to give away and the last thing on your mind today"

Matthew West "Forgiveness" (Amazon | iTunes)

"Oh, Father won't You forgive them, they don't know what they've been doing. Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them cause I feel like the one losing"

Tenth Avenue North "Losing" (Amazon | iTunes)

Ten years after her death on Sept. 11, 2001, Lauren Catuzzi Grandcolas still inspires people. That's not an accident. Her husband, Jack, insists that her legacy be a living one.

Lauren -- along with 39 other passengers and the flight crew -- died when United Flight 93, having been hijacked by terrorists, went down in a field near Shanksville, Pa. It was the flight that fought back against the attackers, preventing the plane from reaching its target in Washington, D.C. The heroism of those passengers -- and their battle cry, "Let's Roll"-- lives on as part of the tragic story of 9/11.

For Jack, the sudden death of his wife carried additional grief. Lauren, 38, was pregnant, and Jack, suddenly without his family, was thrust into a world of pain and loneliness, engulfed by a dark depression. It was Lauren's spirit, in many ways, that gave him the strength he needed to fight his way out of it.
