Forgive them.

FORGIVE THEM. Because March is Women's History Month, another offering from Women Pray--the prayer of an unknown woman written on a piece of wrapping paper found in the Ravensbruck concentration camp:

"O Lord, remember not only the men and women of goodwill but also those of ill will. But do not remember the suffering they have inflicted upon us; remember the fruits we brought, thanks to this suffering--our comradeship, our loyalty, our humility, the courage, the generosity, the greatness of heart which has grown out of this--and when they come to judgment, let all the fruits that we have borne be their forgiveness."
