We will return to the dilemma of the people of Gubbio who had to face the challenge of an imperfect world and deal with the invitation to learn how to forgive and heal their community.  We will place this concept into the practical, concrete instructions that Jesus gave his disciples when he taught them to pray, namely the revolutionary concept of forgiveness in the Lord’s Prayer.  We will discover that this prayer is a call to live a consecrated life, a Eucharistic existence within a dysfunctional world.
