How Can I Forgive?

Fr. John Bartunek and Dan Burke discuss forgiveness, and ways that we can overcome the challenges we face when wounded by others.

Father John and Dan discuss issues associated with the struggle to forgive and how central it is to the gospel of Jesus Christ, especially in the prayer Jesus taught us in the Our Father.  Is forgiveness the face of love in a fallen world? What does mercy have to do with it?  Does it come from us?  What are the things we can do to forgive?  What is one of the most effective helps to helping us forgive?  Is it OK, is it real, to have emotions and feelings when someone hurts us?  Do the feelings and emotions ever go away when we forgive? What can we do to help our emotions catch up with our decisions to forgive? How did Jesus illustrate the type of forgiveness we need to have?
