“Jesus said to his disciples: “You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.

But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.

For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have?

Do not the tax collectors do the same?

And if you greet your brothers only, what is unusual about that?

Do not the pagans do the same?

So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.”” -Matthew 5:43-48.

    Friar, how do I love ISIS when i am so horrified by their actions ? I know I can pray for their salvation….but they, in my humble opinion, are of such profound evil….it is so hard.

    Realize this: We can but pray….for their eyes to be open….for God to show them the error of their ways…but mostly because “For we must all stand before Christ to be judged.

    We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.” – 2 Corinthians 5:10
