One thought

  1. These two short paragraphs of yours speak volumes and I pray they are read, and understood, by many, many people:

    “Even as we break the rules in order to uplift the vulnerable, and even as we ourselves cling to the rules in order to maintain our own comfort, we must remember this: although he preferred the disciples, Jesus did not love the Pharisees any less.

    I find that fact to be both distressing and reassuring. I am distressed because it means I must look with love upon those whose actions I deplore. I am reassured because it means that my own deplorable actions have not made me unlovable.”

    Thank you for reminding us to love others, and for reminding us that we are loved.
