But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;Matt 5:44
I have been much disturbed by the level of hate displayed on the internet, and even in some of the comments about Amoris Laetitia and the Filial Correction letter.. The Left diplays a level of hate and lack of charity that would do credit to a novel by C.S. Lewis: see the report on the CBS lawyer fired for her comments about the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. But we don’t have to emulate that. Pope Francis may be confused, or lack rigor in his theological pronouncements, but we have to assume his motives, possibly misguided, are meant to do good. Let’s take Christ’s command in Matthew 5 to heart. I’ll add that I’ve been guilty myself and will try to do better.
