It is a love that does not allow for discrimination between the beginning of life and the end of life, the person on death row and the saintly neighbor, the rich and the poor, the mentally ill and the physically ill, the homeless man begging at the interstate exit and those who are gainfully employed, etc. It is not always an easy love; we all have prejudices that we have to work at overcoming or at least moments when it is difficult to truly find God in another. Jesus is always there to help us in finding the dignity of others as long as we are open to him.
A dear friend of mine provided many lessons in acceptance and finding the dignity of others. She could be very outspoken, but it was in favor of the rights of others. This friend died suddenly a couple of days ago and I am so grateful for the lessons that she has provided. What more could anyone ask of a friend. I have no doubt that she has secured her eternal place in the light.
