Gospel, Matthew 5:43-48
love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you;
It's not easy for us to understand each other because of our different opinions, beliefs and attitude. With that, we usually have conflicts. The Gospel tells us that we still need to love our neighbours. Even if we have differences, we should respect them the way we want to be respected. And if they do not stop doing something against us, don't fight back in revenge but conquer evil with love. Do not condone the evil deed but do not hate the sinner. We should pray for them, not to condemn, but to ask God to give us courage to help each other grow into holiness.
