"We have to forgive, because we have been forgiven. This is in the Lord's Prayer, Jesus taught us about it there. Human logic is incapable of fathoming this. Human logic leads us not to forgive, to seek revenge; it leads to hate, division. How many families have broken up because unable to forgive, how many families! Children separated from their parents, husbands and wives who have grown distant form each other ... It is so important to think about this: If I do not forgive I don't, it appears, have the right to be forgiven and I do not understand what it means that God has forgiven me.
- Pope Francis in his homily at today's Mass at Casa Santa Marta
