Let us do not be wicked children

Who will be attached to the Church will gain heaven. Who has the Church as a mother will have God as a Father. Otherwise we say in vain the Lord`s Prayer. Who says the Lord`s prayer must have the Church as a mother. When we come to the paragraph `and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us`, we must think if we upset someone with something and we did not apologize or if someone apologized to us for a mistake and we did not forget him. If I don`t do what they say in the prayer, it means I lie when I pray and it also means that I am a wicked child.

The one who says for real the Lord`s prayer, who forgives those who caused him troubles, difficulties, who did a wrong to him. Who does not forgive, I don`t know how he could say this prayer. Such kind of people are in a great delusion. The worst misfortune of these times is enmity. The evil heart doesn`t receive the Holy Spirit! When you are possessed by the bad memories relating to someone, the heart is filled with wickedness and the soul feels like in hell.
