Perhaps it’s best to live with the possibility that around any corner, at any time, may come the person who reminds you of your own capacity to surprise yourself, to put at risk everything that’s dear to you.

That like him, you need to be forgiven.»

How can you hope to enter into communion with him when at some point in your life you are running away from him?»
