2 Corinthians 9:6-11; St. Luke 7:11-16.  After sharing a brief meditation on the epistle reading (we are temples, made for divinity), Fr. Anthony talks about the requirement that we love our enemies, noting that it is made harder when our fallen imaginations constantly create them almost ex-nihilo and when our tribal propagandists  are feeding us with a constant stream of opposition research that makes hating people we have not even met seem natural and righteous.  We have to find a different way to think about others, to include those few who really are objectively seeking to cause our ruin.  We have to be transformed into love so that our vision makes the justification for that love obvious (St. Matthew 6:22-23).  Enjoy the show!
