Daily Quote from the Early Church Fathers

“Beg God for the gift to love one another. Love all people, even your enemies, not because they are your brothers and sisters but that they may become such. Love them in order that you may be at all times on fire with love, whether toward those who have become your brothers and sisters or toward your enemies, so that by being beloved they may become your brothers and sisters.” (Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, 354-430 A.D., excerpt from Sermon on 1 John 10,7)
