When loving someone is difficult

Loving our enemies can seem impossible when a terrible wrong has been done to us. But the power of divine Love can free us from the prison of hatred.

Life for many is not easy. People get hurt. Plant closures, divorces, family separations, mental and physical assaults, can leave people with open wounds of emotional sensitivity that can easily scar with hatred.

But hatred is a prison, the walls of which, although invisible, can keep us confined in old remembrances and hurts. Its cell mates include depression, despondency, and inertia. Hatred has a window on the past, but no door of escape to a better present and future. There is a power, though, that breaks open this prison. It is the power of God, divine Love. This power is always present and can bring us freedom.
