This is the way of Christ. This is the way of love. We cannot choose to love only those whom we like and to whom we are attracted. No, this new commandment is not based on feelings or emotions or personal preferences. It is based on a choice: a choice to recognize and respect the dignity of every person, a choice to see them as God sees them; a choice to love and serve them with the same humility and generosity with which Christ has loved and served us.
-Br. David Vryhof, SSJE
