Dear Friend in the Lord,

Christian Love: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples and us that as the Good News is about the reward of “Eternal Life of Happiness” with God, the love we witness must be radically in contrast to the human love of non-believers.  “Pray for the grace to love, share and serve; inclusive of our ‘enemies,’ like Jesus.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 5:43-48

Jesus said to his disciples, ‘You have learnt how it was said: You must love your neighbour and hate your enemy. But I say this to you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you; in this way you will be sons of your Father in heaven, for he causes his sun to rise on the bad men as well as the good, and his rain to fall on honest and dishonest men alike.

     ‘For if you love those who love you, what right have you to claim any credit? Even the tax collectors do as much, do they not? And if you save your greetings for your brothers, are you doing anything exceptional? Even the pagans do as much, do they not? You must therefore be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.’
