Love for Strangers

Have good will toward the stranger.
Do not seek revenge against the foreigner.
Do not bear a grudge toward the visitor.
Instead: Love the unfamiliar person as yourself.

If your enemy is hungry, feed him.
If he is hurt, bind his wounds.
If he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
Transform your enemy into a friend through acts of compassion.

Practice hospitality.
Scorn what is evil; cling to what is good.
Bless those who persecute you.
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

Find new friendships among people of every kind.
Experience the joy of the Temporal Universe.
Share the promise of the Spiritual Universe.
Find personal inner peace by living in harmony with others.

Remember this commandment in my name.
Live at peace with all who cross your path,
For those you meet may have value in the eyes of God.

Summa 21
