We only know how much a person loves us when we have experienced his or her forgiveness.
Forgiveness is the self-giving that reaches out beyond all barriers and limitations. We cannot stay far from other indefinitely, any more than we can stay far from God. The possibility of changing our ways is always before us, and it is always possible to reconcile with one another.
This is the mediation of LOVE to which we are all called.
