Auschwitz Pardon

“Every aversion, every anger and resentment which we tolerate in our hearts, blocks the door to the Lord.” — Edith Stein

Edith Stein was a German philosopher of Jewish descendent. Before the war she become Catholic and become a Carmelite nun. However, she was deported to Auschwitz and died there. With that in mind I’m amazed at her words quoted above.

Please consider listening to my friend, Fr. Sliney, on how to begin the process of forgiveness. Video

Today say a prayer for that person you’re struggling to forgive.

PS. The photo is of my brother, Fr. Matthew, who works in Krakow, just 40 miles from Auschwitz.
