The Violence of Love

The violence of love…left Christ nailed to a cross; it is the
violence we must each do to ourselves to overcome our selfishness
and the cruel inequalities among us. It is not the violence of
the sword, the violence of hatred. It is the violence of
brotherhood, the violence that will beat weapons into sickles for
peaceful work.
