The Scriptural Rosary: Variations on a Theme

Forgiveness

A prayer (say this prayer once at the start of the Rosary all together):
Heavenly Father, I have been hurt by many people over the years and the wounds often remain fresh and painful in my heart. I often find it difficult to forgive them their transgressions, but I realize that with my inability to forgive, it is I who really suffers. So please grant me the grace to be able to forgive all those who have sinned against me, and hold no resentment or bitterness or anger in my heart anymore. I make this prayer in Jesus’s name. Amen.

"This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.”
