who is my enemy?

And wanting to justify myself — Who is my enemy?

The enemy is the one filled with violence; the one consumed by self-hatred expressed through enmity with others; the one who is controlled by the crowd and the money it gives; the one who lacks the courage to forgive; the one that is feared because of difference; the one who betrays love. The enemy sits at my table. You are the enemy.

Listen to my actions: Love your enemy in your vulnerability; with creativity; with unyielding service; with scandalous proximity and relentless grace. Do this and you shall become the birthplace of God; the seedbed of salvation and reconciliation.
