On forgetting

This morning, we were down to our nth conference on obedience.

Fr. Nioret, our Novice Master, shared with us a text message he received from Fr. Wilbert, our Socius. He recited it from memory.

It was something about forgetting. He told us that in some ways, forgetting things is good.

Especially when we forget the bad things others have done to us.

And when we forget the good things we’ve done to others.
