Poetry and Prayers: Marcion

I have a section of my Book of Shadows that I call Poetry and Prayers. There are no rituals here, no explanations; just writing I find inspiring, thought provoking, or spiritual in some matter. Some are specifically Wiccan, others not. Today, I wanted to share something from the Gospel of Marcion (oft called the Gospel of the Lord) – a noncanonical Christian text. It is in some ways similar to the canonical Gospels, espically Luke.

But I say unto you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. Unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek, offer also the other; and from him that taketh away thy cloke, withhold not thy coat also. Give every man that asketh of thee: and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. and as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise

Gospel of the Lord III:27-32
