VIDEO: Father Jonathan Morris on Praying for Our Enemies

In this week’s video, Father Jonathan Morris reflects on Jesus’s commandment to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. He describes this mandate as “very hard to swallow,” and realizes that we can all probably come up with an abundance of reasons not to forgive the people with whom we’ve had conflicts.

Despite those objections, Father Morris suggests putting those reasons aside and viewing these people through “a mind and a heart of mercy.” Here are his practical suggestions on how we can better practice this challenging commandment in our lives.
