Gospel: Luke 6:27–38
Do good to those who hate you.
The enemies Jesus referred to in today’s Gospel are not the people that we don't like, not just the ones who are offensive and annoying. He is talking about people who hate us, who are ready to hurt us, and who wish us evil. We should love these people without expecting anything in return because God loves them as He loves us.
Let us ask Mother Mary to teach us to find the grace that we need to love and forgive those who have wronged us. Amen.
