To receive another at any depth, we must first receive ourselves in depth. Receiving ourselves requires a spirit of forbearance, i.e. kindness and patience. In this spirit we are enabled to receive others. How we see and respond to ourselves and others will shape our relationship with every person we encounter. Jesus said “love other as you love yourself” seek well-being and giftness of life of all persons.
In the name of the father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen!
