forgiveness

Forgiveness

is the name of love

practiced among people

who love poorly.

The hard truth

is that all people love poorly.

We need to forgive and be forgiven every day,

every hour unceasingly.

That is the great work of love

among the fellowship of the weak

that is the human family.

– Henri J. M. Nouwen
