“If you forgive others their transgressions, your heavenly Father will forgive you.”  ~ Matthew 6:14

I recently watched the movie Amish Grace and was struck profoundly by the power of forgiveness.  My wife rented it and I read the brief description about the movie and didn’t think it would be a great movie, but I was completely wrong.

I can’t remember seeing a movie with such a profound message of forgiveness and hope.  As a follower of Christ I am called to forgive.  There are many clips catechists could us in this film to help teach forgiveness, charity and compassion.  There is so much I could say about the movie and the characters.  Suffice it to say – the Gospel calls us to forgive.  Hate and anger choke love; forgiveness makes room for more love.
