Good people, I ask you all to forgive me for Christ's sake for any offence I may have caused you.

You have never offended me, personally, but, may the Lord forgive you.

I, too, beg everyone's forgiveness.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

You offend me much of the time  ;), George, but you are also a man with great insights and love for God and his Church and even if you weren't a man with such love, I would still forgive you for any offense.  Forgive me, my brother for my offenses towards you and yours.

You give me praise that I don't deserve. If an evil king who attacks a beautiful city to destroy it is to be pitied, how much more should we pity his captured slave who serves him? My state is more pitiable than the demons since by my passions and sins I am the slave of the demons.

My brothers, sisters and everyone else,

 I would like to take this opportunity to ask your forgiveness for my rudeness, my snarkiness, my louth-mouthed outbursts and all other manner of un-charitableness.  Forgive me for angering, scandalizing and hurting you with my words and behavior.

Can I just say, me too?

Forgive me all for all I've done to harm you in thought, word, and deed.

I too ask everyone's forgiveness.

I also ask for your prayers as I struggle to forgive certain people in my life. Somehow I have it in my mind that I am ready to forgive them as soon as they acknowledge their offense and offer an apology. But that's not true forgiveness. I must sincerely forgive them in my heart, unconditionally, regardless of whether or not they admit their wrong and apologize, and without even saying, "I forgive you." My heart is not so soft yet, but I know it needs to be. Sometimes it's hardest to forgive those closest to us.

Please pray for me, a sinner.

Forgive me brothers and sisters for my sinfulness, and any personal offense caused; and also for any lack of attention to the website software that has caused it not to work as smoothly or quickly as it could.

Oz, I am sorry for anything I have done that has offended you, and ask your forgiveness. 

Christ forgives all sins, you have not done anything to offend me in any way.

Forgive me, a sinner, and thank you for all.
It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.
