Homily #140223m ( 15min) Play - Fr. John Joseph talks about the difficult message in today's Gospel, calling for us to respond to our enemies with charity, not with revenge. He reminds us that we will be rewarded in heaven for the amount of charity we give, and punished for the vengeance we've exacted. With this crucial response to those who hurt us, let us follow Our Lord's final command in this Gospel message: "Be perfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect." Ave Maria!
