His master summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant!
I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to.
Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant,
as I had pity on you?’
Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers
until he should pay back the whole debt.
So will my heavenly Father do to you,
unless each of you forgives his brother from his heart.”   Matthew 18

Forgive us our trespasses, 

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Once again we are invited by the Lord to forgive, as he has forgiven us over and over and over again. God never tires of forgiving us, even though so often our sins and failings are the same each time we confess them. Let us be like God; let us go and do likewise, never tiring of offering the Mercy that is of God.
