Brothers Forgiveness

I once asked Brother how he so easily overlooked the pain he suffered from those who had so harshly condemned him to crucifixion. Before he answered I found myself witnessing the scene again. Anger and accusations seemed to come from everywhere. But it was the sense of fear coming from those judging him I noticed most. Then he said, “Now see it thru my eyes.” I began to feel his loving presence, a feeling I had come to know by then. The heaviness, the fear, the sense of conflict lifted and soon was gone. The room, in fact, was replaced by a feeling of pure light. He said, “All those present in judgments chamber that day were God’s Sons, not one more holy than the rest.” I try to remember this when I am tempted to find value in any judgment I might make.
