Blessed Apostles Fast!

This is love tp one’s enemies: to make no reply in the face of hatred, to bear the reception of insults patiently, to forgive an insult either inflicted by a hand or stirred up by stinging words. – St. Valerian

“Pray for those who offend you. Pray that God may forgive your offenders and save them. Pray for their love for you and your love for them so that your heart may change toward them because of their offense. Wish them well and pray to God to have Him spare you from condemning them in thought or before others. It is natural that you pray for those whom you love but it is much more pleasing to God to pray for those who have offended you. Say to Him: ‘O Lord protect, rescue and forgive them. Grant me a blessing in their eyes. Make me love them as much as I love those who are dear to me. Make my heart pure toward them.’ The strong person is not the one who defeats his enemy but the person who gains his enemy as a friend. The strong person is not he who gains victor over someone else, but the one who gains victory over himself.” – Pope shenouda III  

“Loving others and forgiving our enemies is the way that leads up to Heaven, and is what renders men [and women] followers of Christ, and is what makes them, as far as possible, like God.” – St. John Chrysostom
