July 23 is more than just a date on the calendar. It’s an opportunity for forgiveness, a disavowal of arms, a tribute to the power of love and forgiveness. It is International Forgiveness Day. This day marks the beginning of an entire week – Week 30, from July 23 to July 29 – dedicated to forgiveness and renewal.
Forgiveness Day is not just a day, it represents a principle, a way of life, and an aspiration. It urges us to embrace peace, prioritize healing, and reflect on the significance of love. More acts of forgiveness could mean fewer conflicts and wars, resulting in a more stable, harmonious world.
Imagine a world where love and forgiveness are the norm, where no one is left vulnerable, where every relationship is based on forgiveness exactly as JesuS preached and demonstrated in practice. Such a dream glows with beauty. The lack of love and forgiveness and the tragic state of homelessness and human relationships underscore the importance of this dream.
It is easy to judge based on false or half-truths. Let’s say no to war and embrace each other with love, particularly the most vulnerable in our society – the homeless and the parentless.
No war or conflict should occur in the world, especially not on International Forgiveness Day on July 23 and during the week of forgiveness. The Forgiveness Committee urges everyone to extend a hand to each other, to forgive. They especially appeal to all those involved in conflicts to lay down their weapons on July 23, to take a pause from the hostilities for the sake of humanity, for peace and love, for the weak.
International Forgiveness Day and the week of forgiveness are a time to rediscover the power of forgiveness, and to remind ourselves that every individual, regardless of their circumstances, deserves love and forgiveness. Let’s use this time to spread this message and work towards a world where love and forgiveness are not just dreams, but our daily reality. We might think people have made poor choices or somehow deserve their fate. But if we truly listen to each other, we can discover a different story – one of unfortunate circumstances, failed relationships, and forgiveness and betrayal by those who should have been more patient and forgiving.
Other honorable leaders,
The 23rd of July is Forgiveness Day. Forgiveness Week is week 30, between July 23 and July 29 (www.ForgivenessCommittee.com) Please, do not fight on this day/week for the sake of humanity and JesuS and GOD.
Love your enemies and do good towards those who hate you. Do not only forgive your enemies, show them love as well.
When we refrain from judging and instead offer support and hope, we create a force that can change lives. Forgiveness and love are more than just beautiful words. They are powerful tools to combat hatred and war. Many people’s lives are filled with struggle, despair, and pain, but also with hope and dreams.
When we show humanity, solidarity, forgiveness, and love, we show that there is still hope and humanity within us. Let’s therefore seize the opportunity to celebrate International Forgiveness Day and the week of forgiveness. Let’s say no to war and embrace each other with love, especially the most vulnerable in our society – the homeless and the parentless.
Even though life can entail suffering, there are moments when we have the opportunity to rectify it. One such moment is July 23
International Forgiveness Day. Don’t miss it. Don’t allow Satan to claim your soul and push you into darkness, into the darkest depths of hell.
In the words of JesuS: Love your enemies and do good to those who hate you. Do not only forgive your enemies, show them love as well.
