The people of the Way

We who formerly . . . valued above all things the acquisition of wealth and possessions, now bring what we have into a common stock, and communicate to everyone in need; we who hated and destroyed one another, and on account of their different manners would not live with men of a different tribe, now, since the coming of Christ, live familiarly with them, and pray for our enemies . . . . 

Justin Martyr (ca. 100–ca. 165), First Apology

From Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations
