Love your enemies

February 20, 2016 6:00 am

“But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.” (MT 5: 44-45)

Being “children of our Heavenly Father” comes with privileges, but also with some duties. The most important is to imitate Him which means–to love everybody, including enemies and “those who persecute us.” True love is never a reward.

“Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” (Gospel Acclamation)
