Pardon Me - Please...

"What should characterize our behaviorForgive Pardon when we ask for pardon? We should have humility, contriteness of heart, no defensiveness or rationalization of our behavior, no rehashing the argument, no expectation on the reaction we will receive, and surrender of the outcome to God."

                        -Johnnette Benkovic

For Reflection:

Am I willing to apply these characteristics to my behavior when I ask for forgiveness? Why or why not? Which virtue do I need to acquire to do so?

PART I   Page 13  "Hear and let it penetrate into your heart, my dear little son; let nothing discourage you, nothing depress you.  Let nothing alter your heart, or your countenance.  Am I not here who am your Mother?  Are you not under my shadow and protection?  Am I not your fountain of life?  Are you not in the folds of my mantle?  In the crossing of my arms?  Is there anything else that you need?  Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain.  Let not the illness of your uncle afflict you, because he is not going to die now of what he has in himself.  Be sure that he will get well."
