The Beheading of St. Paul Simon de Vos, via Wikimedia Commons
killed by hate and raised by love,
help us to be Your witnesses in a hostile world,
to show most love where there is most hate,
and to live united with one another
until You come again.
Susan Williams, English author
But love your enemies, do good to them,
and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.
Then your reward will be great,
and you will be children of the Most High,
because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
