Juan Pablo II: The spiral of violence only slows the miracle of forgiveness. Jesus was, as usual the people and teaching his disciples precisely on the procedure for settling disputes between believers, when the good Peter was given for making one of the few impoirtantes questions all came up with: a Senor, how many Sometimes I forgive my brother when he sins against me? yHasta seven? The apostle showed his Master one that interroganjtes in which one believes to be the answer in advance and suggested the number seven as a token of his generosity, for which prbablemente expected to have a recognition of the type a Que good you are my disciple. Your mercy has no name and so I put an example to all your brothers, But this was not the answer of Jesus, who surprised everyone with an unexpected statement: a Oeno tell you until seven, but seventy times sietea . (Matt. 18:21) The episode is just a sample of that forgiving others is not an exclusive decision of God but we also gave us the power to ignore the punishment deserved by those who hurt us in some way, not taking into account the offense received or any outstanding debt or obligation. But this is not the only proof that we are called to grant forgiveness to someone who so requests and who is not even bother to apply to9me. Consider the following cases: We are commanded to forgive when we pray, if we have anything against anyone. .
