Today, let us commit ourselves to being with Christ as he breaks down the barriers that divide people and bring healing.

This week we are asked to reflect on the relationship between love, healing and forgiveness? Jesus challenges us to recognise that we are called to love our neighbour whoever that might be and be ready to respond with mercy and love towards them. To bring down the barriers that divide us from each other.

Lord, give me the strength to change my mind about people.

Let me be able, not to judge them once and for all, but to give them a chance.

Let me find out that they too can be different and I must change my ideas from time to time.

Let me be understanding and tolerant, remembering that I will be judged in the same way that I have judged others.
