so many times every day people are condemned: judged and rejected for who or what they are.
Forgive me for the times that I have washed my hands of my responsibilities
and have not had the courage to speak out or do what is most loving.
Help me never to be indifferent, but to accept and love others as you did.
I give to you the memories of all the times that I have been wrongly accused,
harshly judged or rejected and trust that you will heal me.
—from The Way of Love by Fr Johan Strydom
