This Sunday, I begin my homily talking about my experience of 9/11. I then discuss the Just War Theory criteria for going to war. I connect this with today’s readings on forgiveness and being able to move on without forgetting the past. I finish by concluding that this type of complete forgiveness is not possible to do on our own. We need outside help to do this. Bishop Quinn consecrated the Diocese of Winona to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Bishop Quinn has asked the priests to consecrate each parish to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Also, he encouraged families and individuals to consecrate themselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The graces mediated by the Immaculate Heart can make it easy to live out today’s readings of forgiving our brothers and sisters.
