Holy Week, which commemorates the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, is a time for self-reflection and introspection. 

It’s a time to think about how we can live more in line with Jesus’ teachings and show love and forgiveness to others, just as he did for us.

Here are some questions to ponder during this Holy Week:

How are you feeling these days?
What are the things about yourself that have changed over time?
Do you love your neighbors as yourself?
How will you reconcile with the people you once hurt or offended?
Have you forgiven those who have wronged you?

Forgiveness is a central theme during Holy Week, as we prepare to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. 

It’s a time to acknowledge our mistakes and shortcomings and to forgive those who have hurt us.

Loving our enemies can be challenging, but it’s an important part of our faith. 

According to Catholic Mom, enemies can take many forms in our lives, but the best way to love them is to forgive them from the heart.

Mayo Clinic emphasizes the importance of forgiveness for our mental and physical health. 

Letting go of grudges and bitterness can lead to healthier relationships, improved mental health, and even lower blood pressure.

Moving toward forgiveness takes practice and commitment. Mayo Clinic suggests recognizing the value of forgiveness, identifying what needs healing, and choosing to forgive the person who has offended you. 

Forgiveness is not only about letting go of past hurts but also about giving yourself permission to be free from anger and resentment. It’s about finding peace of mind and allowing yourself to grow and move forward.

Forgiveness is not just for others but also for yourself. It’s about letting go of regrets and forgiving yourself for the things you could’ve or should’ve done when you knew so little. 

In this world, we experience a lot of hurt, but we also have the capacity to forgive, to offer others the same forgiveness we would want for ourselves.
