Thoughts on Tuesday's Gospel

MT 5:43-48

God’s Son shines on the good and the bad. I know I wouldn’t want it any differently because it is indeed when we have done wrong that we need the Son most of all. Yet it is very difficult to love our enemies – whether people who are far away such as Osama Bin Laden or even people in our neighborhood or church that have caused us pain. We may pray for their conversion but loving enemies requires mutual conversion – in fact they may be praying for our conversion at the same time that we are praying for theirs.
