Sunday, December 20th

Against all the movements of like and dislike the Lord’s precept is set: “Thou must love thy neighbor as thyself.” That applies without conditions or reductions. The neighbor is not he whom I like. It is everyone who approaches me, without exception. And again it enjoins, “Thou canst, so thou must!” It is the Lord who demands it, and He demands nothing impossible. Much more, He makes possible, what of course would not be possible.

– St. Teresa Benedicta
