ST. LOUIS (CNS) — Forgiveness.
Such a simple word, a mere 11 letters but it’s at the heart of the Catholic faith, along with love, peace and justice.
“Jesus tells us that if we receive him as the bread of life, we will have his life within us,” Archbishop Robert J. Carlson of St. Louis said in his homily at a Mass for peace and justice Aug. 9 at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. “He shows what this life means on the cross, when he forgives those who killed him.”
