  WORD OF THE DAY ...
Revelation 21:2-4: I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride, beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
  Today's Readings ... (August 11, 2011)
Memorial of Saint Clare, virgin
First Reading: Joshua 3:7-10a, 11,13-17
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 114:1-2,3-4,5-6
Gospel: Matthew 18:21,19:1
  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 18:21,19:1)
Jesus made it clear in today’s Gospel, that there is no quantifiable boundary to forgiveness. Jesus drove the lesson home with a parable regarding two very different categories of debts. The first man due a huge sum of money. In Jesus' time this amount was larger than the total revenue of a province - more than it would charge to ransom an emperor! The man who was forgiven such an unbelievable debt could not, however bring himself to forgive his neighbor an extremely small debt which was about one hundred of his own debt. No offense our neighbor can do to us can evaluate with our debt to God! We have been forgiven a debt which is ahead of all paying; to payment to our debt of sin God gave up his only beloved Son. Paul says, "You were bought with a price" and that cost was Jesus' death on the cross. Through the crucifixion and death on the cross, Jesus not only fetched forgiveness and pardon for our offenses, but free from captivity – from oppression and slavery to sin. Jesus came to redeem us from a sinful way of life. "Our payment from the useless ways inherited from our fathers ...with the precious blood of Jesus". Christ "gave himself to redeem us from all wickedness". Iniquity explains the useless ways of wrongdoing or sin. We have been forgiven a huge debt which we could by no means to repay. God wait for us to treat one another the similar way he treats us. If God has forgiven every one of us our debt, which was very immense, we too have to forgive others whatever debt they are obliged us.
