In the Gospel of Luke we learn of the experience of the sinful woman whom Jesus forgives. She presents herself to Him in all humility. Jesus forgives her sins and shows forth the way that God works.

Not everyone gets the point that Jesus makes – it is in God’s nature to forgive. Do I get the point? Am I willing to be forgiven? Am I able to forgive others?

O Holy Spirit, breathe into me the forgiving Love who is God. May my experience of forgiveness and healing bear the gift of mercy offered to others.
