It is clear, then, that to love others well we must first love the truth.
The truth we must love in loving our brothers is the concrete destiny and sanctity that are willed for them by the love of God.
The truth I must love in my brother is God Himself, living in him. I must seek the love of the Spirit of God breathing in him.
— Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island
Can we hear these words anymore? Do they signify anything we dare to believe?
Let’s dare, dare to love the truth, dare to believe God, dare to love God and our neighbor, God in our neighbor, living and breathing in us and our neighbor.
