Today’s gospel invites us to pray over Jesus’ familiar words of the Our Father, a prayer we likely learned when very young.  This prayer gets to the heart of right relationships —with our God and with one another.  Openness to God’s presence and forgiveness of one another bring us to the very heart of Jesus’ teaching.

Jesus’ invites me today to forgive myself.  The humility required to find personal peace makes it possible for me to settle things with another person — especially someone very close.

Make it a “great day” — reach out to someone else and then sit with Jesus to experience peace.
