From Vatican Radio:
"With forgiveness, with love for our enemy, we become poorer: love
impoverishes us, but that poverty is the seed of fertility and love for
others. Just as the poverty of Jesus became the grace of salvation for
all of us, great wealth ... Let us think today at Mass, let us think of
our enemies those who do not wish us well: it would be nice if we
offered the Mass for them: Jesus, Jesus' sacrifice, for them, for those
who do not love us. And for us too, so that the Lord teaches us this
wisdom which is so hard, but so beautiful, because it makes us look like
the Father, like our Father: it brings out the sun for everyone, good
and bad. It makes us more like the Son, Jesus, who in his humiliation
became poor to enrich us, with his poverty. "
