Reader comment on Brother David Steindl-Rast's passage ...

Loving Your Enemy

We think we know what love is, but not until we encounter hate in another do we really know what love is. This is love...to give even when we are being hated for the love we have for all--even our enemies. To know that we really aren't separate beings. No, it isn't easy.  It is painful to die to our illusions of separateness and superiority.  But with courage and community, we can live and pray our way into learning this new way of being in the world.
