SEVENTH SUNDAY in ORDINARY TIME
LOVE YOUR ENEMY
The followers of Jesus were to interpret the law of love of neighbor in a magnanimous way, not judging between people or bestowing charity selectively. Just as God allowed his sun to shine on all, so must Christians let their love shine like a city on a hill or a lamp on a stand, for all. Called beyond the mere ethical humanism which even pagans and tax collectors practiced, the Disciples of Christ were vowed to divine perfection. The norm for living was no longer the Ten Commandments carved in stone, but the holiness of the Lord himself, to be true sons and daughters of their Father, Christians had to channel their human capacities for revenge, favoritism and prejudice in order to embrace the Father’s holiness of loving, giving and forgiving.
