In our gospel for today, Jesus makes it unmistakably clear that you and I, his followers, are under obligation to love our enemies. Of all his teachings this is perhaps the most difficult to understand, approve and obey. At first glance it seems more like an idealistic dream than a serious thought about life. The best way to do this is to follow the example of Jesus. “His sun rises on the good and the bad, he sends his rain on the just and the unjust, the lilies and the weeds.”
