“God is not waiting around to get even with people for things that they have done fifteen years before. God is gentle and humble of heart; unconditionally good and loving. Therefore we do not need to cower and grovel before God’s will. We need to trust in it; trust in its awesome beauty, its unconditional power to bring goodness out of seeming limitless diversity of so many people’s lives; trust in the affection that the Hebrew prophets termed ‘hesed we emet’ (a parent’s love for a child).” (Fr. Robert Spitzer, SJ, Healing the Culture, Ignatius)
Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, SJ, Ph.D., is president of the Magis Center.
