How simple it would be if only we could see with the eyes of Charity...
To have charity in our hearts is to live according to God's commandment "to love one another..."
How can we obtain this charity of neighbor?
Three little words: pray, pray, pray...
We pray unceasingly, with a sincere heart, and with an urgent pitch in our voices because only God can give us the charity necessary to see, and be able to "love our neighbor as ourselves..."
It is easy to love our loved ones and all those who are kind (charitable) towards us. But at times, (and probably more often than we care to admit) even our loved ones act unkindly and in an uncharitable manner. Do we stop loving them at this moment or do we pray instead for God to open our eyes and see His presence within?
Does our human weakness battle (against the greater nature of our essence) at this point?
Or do we simply, naturally acquiesce to the virtue (bestowed by the grace of God) and love these unkindly loved ones all the more?
