Brian Busse, SJ, says that our desires will save us. “It is in our deepest desires that we discover the heart of God.”
Apathy toward our self or someone else is among the gravest rejections of freedom and love. Indifference feigns tolerance by saying that you’re acceptable in a way that suggests that it really doesn’t matter who you are. Love suggests the opposite: that you’re acceptable exactly because of who you are and not in spite of it. It’s not that it doesn’t matter what you do, it’s that it matters absolutely. When you experience love and find true acceptance it’s an experience of love not because they could care less about who you are, but because they couldn’t possibly care more.
