Love your enemies
Love your enemies. Do good to those
who hate you. Bless those who curse you.
Pray for those who disparage you.
We have to say honestly: Sorry, but we cannot identify
with what Jesus is saying, not even with one sentence of it; to love our enemies.
That’s beyond our capabilities. We are not able to
undertake this task which Jesus designates for us.
And even if it happens that we manage to do just as Jesus says, it is
an absolute exception, extraordinary thing in our lives.
Our God, we ask you, please let us at least partially fulfill the commandment which Your Son speaks for.
