Tuesday of the Eleventh Week in Ordinary Time:               Forgive and Love Your Enemies

 

Readings for Mass

First Reading: Second Corinthians 8:1-9
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 146:2, 5-6, 7, 8-9
Gospel: Matthew 5:43-48


“But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (NRSV, Mt 5:44).”

Let us pray.

 

Father, no matter how much we sin, no matter how much we turn away from you and reject the life that you offer us, through your Word, you are always present to us, offering us forgiveness, love and new life in the Holy Spirit.

Father, with your help, may we accept the challenge of your Word, who never leaves us, and allow your forgiveness and new life to fill us. Transformed by that life, may we, in turn, go out to others in love, even to our worst enemies, offering them forgiveness and love as we first have been loved by you, Father, through your Word, in the Holy Spirit.

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
