04-17-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

April 17, 2018
As they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”  Then he fell to his knees and cried out in a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them”; and when he said this, he fell asleep.   Acts_7:51—8:1a

In reference to:

Jesus, on the cross, who said, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.”  Lk_23:34

Now, beloved, if Jesus and Stephen can forgive them as they were nailing Him to a post and stoning Stephen to death, why is it so hard for us to forgive even the mildest of things done against us – a misunderstood word, and accidental driving infraction, or even a ‘slight’ done to us on purpose.  It’s not our death, it’s probably not even our reputation at stake.  Let it go!  And let God take care of it!  If only we and our illustrious leaders could get this point!
“Lord, please don’t hold this sin against them.”
“Let Your love begin with me!”
