If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you

Acts 4:10-12: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth ... Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, Your love has given the sacrifice for our sin and your power has given us the assurance of our resurrection from the dead. Your Son's willingness to spend a lifetime with us has given us a Great High Priest who intercedes with empathy for my struggles. His example lets us know of your great love. Thank you, O God! Thank you for being so gracious and giving us such a wonderful Savior. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 6:7-15)
Do we believe that God’s word has power to change and transform our life today? Isaiah says that God’s word is like the rain and snow which makes the unproductive ground to life and become plentifully fertile. God’s word has power to penetrate our dry infertile hearts and make them springs of fresh life. If we let God’s word take basis in our heart it will transform us into the similarity of God himself and empower us to walk in his way of love and holiness. God wants his word to guide and form the way we think, act, and pray. We can come near to God confidently because he is waiting with arms wide open to receive us the prodigal sons and daughters. That is why Jesus gave us the ideal prayer that dares to call God, Our Father. This prayer teaches us how to ask God for the things we in fact need, the things that matter not only for the present but for perpetuity as well. We can move toward God our Father with self-assurance and boldness since Christ has opened the way to heaven for us through his death and resurrection. When we request God for help, he luckily does not give us what we merit. Instead, he reacts with grace, mercy, and kindness. He is good and merciful towards us, and he waits for us to treat our neighbor the same. God has poured his love into our hearts through the present of the Holy Spirit. And that love is like a cleansing fire – it purifies and be on fire away all prejudice, hatred, anger, vengeance, and bitterness until there is not anything left but goodness and forgiveness towards those who reason us grief or harm.
(Sunday Homilies - Sermon by Fr Kuriakose)
