Hating No One – Thomas Merton

July 27, 2022
One of our prayer spots at Ignatius House in Atlanta

How true it is that the great obligation of the Christian, especially now, is to prove himself a disciple of Christ by hating no one, that is to say, by condemning no one, rejecting no one. And how true that the impatience that fumes at others and damns them (especially whole classes, races, nations) is a sign of the weakness that is still unliberated, still not tracked by the Blood of Christ, and is still a stranger to the Cross. — Thomas Merton (July 22, 1963 in Journal IV, Turning Towards the World: The Pivotal Years)
