A Quote by Saint Silouan of Mt. Athos on love, god, peace, hatred, enemies, hearts, hope, freedom, spirit, and soul

"Peace in our souls is impossible unless we beg the Lord with all our hearts to give us love for all men.  The Lord knew if we did not love our enemies, we should have no peace of soul, and so He gave us the Commandment, 'Love your enemies.'  Unless we love our enemies, we shall only now and then be easy, as it were, in our souls; but if we love our enemies, peace will dwell in us day and night."

Saint Silouan the Anthonite

A Quote by Paul Richards on enemy, self, friends, enemies, blessings, and self-love

We are trained to fear, resist, and fixate upon external enemies and to see ourselves as our most faithful and loyal friend. This is an inversion—most people never experience an external enemy that even begins to match the power of the opponent within. Although you may not know it, one of the greatest blessings that you can experience is a single moment of your life in which you are not your own worst enemy.

A Quote by St. Teresa of Avila on demons, fear, frightened, attachment, possessions, negative, weapons, and enemies

  "Demons frighten us because we set ourselves up to be frightened. We are overly attached to our reputations and possessions. When we love and desire what we should be rejecting, we are in conflict with our true selves.That's when the negative energies catch us and use our weapons against us. Instead of taking up what we have to defend ourselves, we put our swords in the hands of our enemies and make them attack us."

A Quote by Robert Funk on jesus, love, radical, samaritan, and enemies

Love your enemies is probably the most radical thing Jesus ever said. Unless, of course, one considers the parable of the Samaritan. There the admonition is to let your enemies love you.
