Or do we use that perceived lack of charity as an opportunity to self exam our own consciences, and find those areas were our own charity has been lacking, seek forgiveness and make amends? We have the choice of holding onto resentments or forgiving 70 x 7 times realizing that in order to be able to forgive, we must accept that we will be injured first. As Fr. P. said at Mass last Sunday, after having dealt with the ugliness of an extremely personal attack, the Good Samaritan offered more than charity, he offered mercy.
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us!
Blessings on this glorious feast day!
