Today’s Gospel from Matthew is certainly timely (Matt 5:38-48).
Go read it.
Love your enemies. Resist evil itself, not evildoers. The way of Jesus is not easy my friends, but it is transformative. It can transform our own hearts, our web of relationships, and our world.
The first reading from Levitivus is also challenging and timely (Lev 19: 1-2, 17-18).
“Though you may have to reprove your fellow citizen, do not incur sin because of him. Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against any of your people. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
