Saint John Chrysostom on loving our enemies.

24 February 2011

   

  “It is certainly a finer and more wonderful thing to change the mind of enemies to another way of thinking than to kill them…. The mystery of the Eucharist requires that we should be innocent not only of violence but of all enmity, however slight, for it is the mystery of peace.”
— St. John Chrysostom

(347-407)
