Morning Shift

Religion and forgiveness

Starting at noonFriday, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago is offering its first Festival of Forgiveness. Over a 24-hour period, people can come to pray and seek forgiveness whether they’re Catholic or not. More than two dozen churches, shrines and university ministries are taking part. The event is modeled after a similar festival Pope Francis held in Rome last year. Monsignor Rich Hynes is joining us by phone to tell us why the Archdiocese is holding its Festival of Forgiveness and Scott Paeth from DePaul University is here to talk about what role forgiveness plays in multiple religions.(Filckr/gerrydincher)
