Gospel Reflections

This weeks Gospel - Matthew 18:21-35

This week Jesus is explaining to Peter about forgiveness.  Peter approaches Jesus and asks "Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive?  As many as 7 times?"  Jesus tell him not 7 times but 77 times.  He then tells him a parable in which a servant, owes his master money and begs for forgiveness.  The master moved with compassion forgave his debt.  But the servant turns around and seeing someone who owes him a much smaller debt, chokes him and demands payment.  The master heard of this, summons him back, says "You wicked servant!  I forgave you your entire debt should you not have had pity on your fellow servant?" 

How do we handle forgiveness?  Are we any different than the servant?  We can come before our master in confession and our debt is wiped away.  Do we then show the same compassion to others who have wronged us?  Remember we ask in the Our Father - Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
