Estote perfecti (Mt 5:48)

You are a child of your heavenly Father and for this reason you have important duties. First of all, you need to pray for all your sisters and brothers throughout the world. These include not just your friends and relatives, but also your enemies and persecutors. This is the way your Father feels towards everyone all the time and everywhere. He loves all his children even if they commit sins and reject his divine love. He shows his interest all the time and is ready to support the needy. You yourself have probably not always been a good child. But you wanted to be loved and to receive forgiveness. You also did not behave properly towards all other people in your life. Nonetheless, deep in your soul you felt that your behavior was unjust and you regreted it. You are a beloved child of God and therefore you are to become holy and to show progress in this. You are not supposed to behave like sinners who forget about their vocation to holiness. Your behavior should be perfect so that all people will see that your are a child of your heavenly Father.
