Forgive all wrongs.
You cannot be forgiven without also being one who can forgive. To obtain our forgiveness, our Lord makes it a condition that we have a merciful spirit as well. You are to forgive others for their wrongs in the same way that God forgives yours; mercy must not be refused if someone comes to you in the spirit of sincere repentance. Forgive all wrongs.
