The Avila Institute’s latest webinar co-sponsored with the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO) offered valuable advice and wisdom for every spiritual caregiver. Brother Wayne brought his years of expertise in working with people in vocations and working with his fellow brothers from leadership positions to his presentation. Forgiveness is a common theme in the Bible; the concept of forgiveness appears a total of 75 times. However, all too often people do not understand the importance or the ‘how’ of forgiveness. Our model comes from Jesus who often would tell people their sins are forgiven. Two striking passages tell of God’s mercy for His people: Mt. 6:14-24, which reads, “If you forgive others the wrongs they have done to you, your father in Heaven will also forgive you.” Also Mt. 11:28 is a beautiful passage: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
