The love of Christ, welcomed with an open heart, changes us, transforms us, renders us capable of loving not according to human measure, always limited, but according to God’s measure. And what is the measure of God? Without measure! Everything! Everything! Everything! It’s impossible to measure the love of God: it is without measure! And so we become capable of loving even those who do not love us—and this is not easy. To love someone who doesn’t love us is never easy! Because if we know
that a person doesn’t like us, then we also tend to bear ill will toward them. But no! We must love even someone who doesn’t love us! Opposing evil with good, with pardon, with sharing, with welcome. POPE FRANCIS
