- Homily of Pope Francis, August 18, 2014, Korea
Have you offended someone deliberately, or by accident. One is a sin. Both are not worthy of our Christian calling. Both call for reconciliation. At times it seems too difficult to reconcile with others. That is human. When we have been hurt, especially in a large way, it is hard to forgive. rather than avoid reconciliation, maybe the best approach is to pray for healing. This is an act of faith. When healing has begun, then it is easier to seek reconciliation.
