You are , of course, correct, Tobin.

Forgiveness is best for the one hurt.
I don't dwell on my mother's situation; it's years ago, and growing longer every year.
But whenever the subject of long-held grievance comes up, that is the one thing I return to.

Prayers always welcome, especially when driving (!)

over 1000 miles - son is driving.

The only person I have had trouble forgiving is my mother's

second husband, married to my mother after my father had died.

I was long married, with a family, and initially happy for my mother, for she cared for him.
But after 10-12 years, when she started suffering from dementia, he effectively abandoned her.

She tried to phone him, but his daughter always said he was sleeping and he never called or spoke to her again.
He never sent her a Christmas card or contacted her in any way, and even on her dementia, she was hurt.
He died never having spoken to her again, and mother died about five years later.
How do truly forgive such an action?

Thank you, Justin; and to you as well

and to your mother.
Leaving tomorrow for FL ; I may not be in touch as much but will treasure the time I do have for DU and like-minded souls.
Peace.

Today is the Feast of the Holy Family

Sirach: For a kindness to a father will not be forgotten; it will serve as a sin offering.

Not the chief function of the Church. Only a secondary mission.

Look a little further for the function of the Church.

"I do not fault them for not agreeing".

You are far too generous, Drahthaardogs.

You know, as well as I, that many here not only do not know what they are talking about, they have no idea what they do not know.
Your last line is most correct - what is the point of attempting discussion - I use the term discussion because I do not come on DU to argue- with those who only know what they have picked up along the way and only wish to support their position, rather than taking an objective look at a very deep and complicated subject.

How is it you deem Rudy Guiliani "a Good Catholic"?

What norms are you using?

How much is in your bank account? 401(K)?

It could/should be spent feeding the poor.
