In the selection we reflect on this week from Matthew’s Gospel, the evangelist addresses the necessity of repentance and repeated forgiveness that are required of those who call themselves Christian. It invites us to face up to some of the most difficult aspects of living out the Gospel: responsibility, forgiveness, justice and mercy. Matthew reminds us that forgiveness means open dialogue, that it is a process and that it is a sharing in God’s power to bring about something new.
