Loving our enemies
Children at St. Mary Star of the Sea Parish in Freeport, Texas are learning about the Cube of Love. Here are some of their experiences of trying to “Love your enemy.”

Tyler: “someone argued and made me angry. I told the teacher and the teacher made her say ‘Sorry.’ And I forgave her.”

Fernando: “A boy was bullying me, trying to hit me, punch me. I told Mom, and I forgave him.”

Fabian: “A boy at school was trying to hit me. I said, ‘Stop!’ I was trying to hit him back, but I remembered ‘love my enemy,’ and I stopped.”

Maryanna: “A boy was bullying another girl, calling her ‘Tiny.’ It hurt her feelings, so I cheered her up.”

Laysha: “Yesterday at school we were going home, and a boy hit me on the head with his backpack on purpose. The teacher tried to get him to say sorry, but he didn’t. Today he was giving me a mean look. I smiled at him, and he smiled back.”
