TURN THE OTHER CHEEK
Today we hear and read one of the most famous passages in the
Gospels: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. It is a
radical text and not so easy. How can we be expected to love those who
have hurt us or done harm to us? Anthony de Mello, an Indian Jesuit who
wrote many books on spirituality, spoke often about the concept of
"loving enemies". When someone hurts us, when someone triggers emotional
pain in us, de Mello suggests that we try to come to the realisation
that we are "standing before our benefactor". The situation is a
reminder that we are still to grow and we are hurt because someone has
not met our expectations. It is these expectations that we must let go
of. We can learn from the other who has wronged us: how has this
affected me? What do I need to let go of?
The teachings in this passage are radical and go against what we hear
around us in our world like calls for retribution and revenge. However
Jesus has high expectations of his followers, to go against the grain.
Jesus is not encouraging passiveness. He is inviting people to a "third
way": to make a non-violent stand when faced with persecution. By
"offering the other cheek" we allow for the potential of conversion of
the other to a realisation of what they have done. The easy option is to
retaliate, to not see our brother or sister standing before us. We can
offer them an opportunity to see our own sacred humanity. "Loving our
enemies" is a call to constantly move towards restoring relationships,
offering mercy and peace.
"An eye for an eye will leave the whole world blind"
