Having our loins girded, therefore,
with faith and the performance of good works,

Forgiveness is a school of freedom: it frees us from the slavery of resentment and hatred, widening our hearts to the extent of the heart of God.
One reacts to a brother’s sin with fraternal correction, with prayer, with a more solid communion of what can injure that communion.
