Normal human instinct as well as professional medical advice recognize prolonged anger and unwillingness to forgive one another as injurious to human health. The sinner is prone to this sad disposition. God’s love-covenant with us now makes forgiveness a divine command and hateful anger a grievous sin. Given the horror of living in eternal sadness because of hateful bitterness Jesus commands us to forgive endlessly. – Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna
