“The Truth in person says, ‘Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you and pray for them who persecute you and say evil of you falsely’ (Lk. 6:27). It is virtue therefore before men to bear with adversaries; but it is virtue before God to love them; because the only sacrifice which God accepts is that which, before His eyes, on the altar of good work, the flame of charity kindles.”

Saint Gregory the Great
