Saints Perpetua and Felicity – 

Who are these enemies Jesus speak about? Do we ever consider those with whom we rub shoulders every day? Some of these people can be very unpleasant, unkind, and unfair. They say things we don’t like. They take us for granted. They show no appreciation for the good things we do for them. Their presence makes our little part of the world very difficult. I think these are the people Jesus had in mind when he asked us to love our enemies.
