Forgiveness and Religious

Today's Gospel speaks of the need to give forgiveness. I can remember hearing one of the historians at Notre Dame speaking of his research into monastic history and how he came across several copies of the Lord's Prayer in which the phrase, "as we forgive those who trespass against us" had been omitted so as to allow the monks both to pray the Lord's Prayer and to withhold forgiveness from one another.

How sad it must be to want to hold on to your anger so much that you are willing to deface the words of God.
