Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.  – Lk 6:27

Reflection.  John Kennedy once said, “Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.”  This is wisdom, but Jesus challenged us to love our enemies.  This does not mean that we can allow terrorists to have their way in the world.  The evil tyrant must be stopped, and then forgiven.

Prayer.  Father, forgive them for they know not what they do, but protect our soldiers in the process.
