The boundless love with which Jesus Christ loves each and every person is the same love Catholics are compelled to show their "enemies," Pope Francis said Sunday.
Speaking during his address before the recitation of the Regina Coeli prayer May 19, the pope asked people to answer a question in their hearts: "Am I capable of loving my enemies?"
"We all have people – I do not know if they are enemies – but that do not agree with us, who are 'on the other side,'" he said.
"Or does anyone have people who hurt them," he added, urging people to ask themselves: "Am I capable of loving those people? That man, that woman who hurt me, who offended me? Am I able to forgive him?"
