Many people wonder whether there will ever be healing for the wounds we suffer? Jesus offers us a way, but it is far from easy. “Be merciful,” He tells us, “as your heavenly Father is merciful.” Jesus asks us to love our enemies and to do good to those who harm and hate us and the whole key is “forgiveness”, to forgive those who wound us and hurt us no matter how severe the wounds.
