O God, Father of all, help us to forgive others as we would wish them to forgive us. May we try to understand them as we in turn would like to be understood, in the hope that forgiveness will not be in order. May we see with their eyes, think with their minds, feel with their hearts. Then let us ask ourselves whether we should judge them, or judge ourselves and accept them as children, like us, of one heavenly Father.
