Continued from page 1
Say five Hail Mary’s every day for someone you don’t like. Pray for their general well being…not for them to change or leave you alone. “Oh Lord, let this man see his evil ways, and turn to You” isn’t a charitable prayer at all.
Ask yourself before you go to bed if you’re holding any grudges. If you are, then stop. Charity is impossible without mercy. Push your anger towards someone to back of your heart and let it suffocate. Don’t allow yourself to fantasize about revenge, and pray for them.
When you can’t feel it, fake it. Charity won’t always overwhelm you with feel good emotions. Sometimes doing right thing is difficult. So put your feelings aside and forge ahead. If you have a hard time caring about someone, just treat them as you would want to be treated.
