St. John Bosco

All at once I saw St. John Bosco delivering a sermon. “My brothers and sisters in Christ, it is only through forgiveness that we are led on the path of holiness and brought deeper into the Heart of Jesus. Forgiveness summons forth God's mercy and so His love. Then He is pleased to lead the soul according to His Divine Will since there is nothing to hinder Him. Unforgiveness is like a cloak of darkness, shrouding the soul from passing into light and truth. Pray that the Holy Spirit lead you in forgiveness of others and forgiveness of yourself, so that this foreboding obstacle to holiness be forever removed from your life.”
