God has given us a precious, natural gift, that of memory. We
have happy memories and painful ones. But what is the purpose
of this gift? Memory enables us to remember who we are and
whose we are and, because of this, where we are going. Pope
Francis said recently: “Memory is important, because it allows
us to dwell in love, to be mindful, never forgetting who it is who
loves us and whom we are called to love in return.” We are
adopted sons and daughters of Our loving Father. We have been
redeemed and reconciled by the death of Jesus, our Lord and
Savior. We have been sanctified and anointed by the Holy Spirit,
who dwells in us as a Temple of God. Our destiny is not this
earthly life, but life eternal in the presence of God. Remember
and reflect on these truths and not the negative things of the
past. And because of these truths, God wants to do something
new in our lives. When we forget the positive memories, we fall into the darkness of the past. Allow the positive aspect of memory to be stronger than the painful aspect.
