Jesus said, “Love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be like your Father in heaven, since he causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous”. (Matthew 5:44-45)
Despise the sin, not the person. Remember, sinners can change and repent, and we can help them!
Reflection (Act of Love)
O my God, I love You above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because You are all good and worthy of my love. I love my neighbour as myself for the love of You. I forgive all who have injured me and I ask pardon of all whom I have injured. Amen.
Prayer: Most Holy Mary (St John Bosco)
Most Holy Virgin Mary, Help of Christians,
how sweet it is to come to your feet
imploring your perpetual help.
If earthly mothers cease not to remember their children,
how can you, the most loving of all mothers forget me?
Grant then to me, I implore you,
your perpetual help in all my necessities,
in every sorrow, and especially in all my temptations.
I ask for your unceasing help for all who are now suffering.
Help the weak, cure the sick, convert sinners.
Grant through your intercessions
many vocations to the religious life.
Obtain for us, O Mary, Help of Christians,
that having invoked you on earth
we may love and eternally thank you in heaven.
