Faith & Loving Your Enemy

Another quote on loving your enemy, this comes from Hilary:

Faith requires that enemies be cherished.  It breaks the tendency we have to be peevish and urges us to bear life’s difficulties calmly.  Faith not only deters anger from turning into revenge but even softens it into love for the injurer.  (Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture – Matthew, vol.1)
