Gospel: Luke 6:27-38
Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful (Lk 6:36)
In today’s gospel, Jesus invites the disciples to love their enemies in the different ways and situations that they are confronted by them. We are invited by Jesus to do the same as we all came to be sinners. However, we should love them without expecting anything in return. We must give no matter how hard it is to apply especially in the daily situations that we encounter. Jesus sets an example to start trying to love our enemies, may it be a person or situation.
Mother Mary, we ask the grace to be merciful to our enemies just as our Father is merciful to them.
