December 26 - Saint Steven
When he was about to be stoned to death, Steven lifted his eyes to the sky and exclaimed: “ I see the heavens open.” No doubt that heaven was welcoming him, the first martyr of Christianity. He saw the glory, God’s arms ready to receive him. Steven has become the model of all martyrs as he died forgiving his executors. This is the key.
What is most difficult for you to forgive? Are you capable of forgiving even those who hurt you the most?
