Youth Views: Does forgiveness matter?

Gustav Hein, senior
Msgr. McClancy H.S.

Forgiveness does matter. Some actions are not thought about before acting upon. Some words are not meant, due to the moment. A world without forgiveness would be filled with hatred and grievances. Forgiveness is essential to human life and relationships.

Gabriel Maciejaszek, junior
Msgr. McClancy H.S.
I think forgiveness is important primarily because it helps to grow as people. It’s very easy to get caught up in the very fast world we live in today, but learning to take a step back and forgive is essential for growth.


Rafael Silva, junior
Cathedral Prep and Seminary
It matters a lot because without forgiveness, you keep anger and frustration inside of you.
